Ripe is the UAE’s leading provider of fresh, local organic fruits and vegetables. We’re a team of food fanatics, on a mission to educate and engage the community in our passion for local, organic and seasonal produce.
At the top of the tree is Dubai-based entrepreneur, Becky Balderstone, who launched Ripe in the summer of 2011 when she realised that she couldn’t source seasonal, organic, local fresh produce boxes in the UAE, like she could in the UK and elsewhere. It was then that the Ripe seed was first planted and the Ripe Box was born.
Several years and many hours of hard work later, the Ripe team is pioneering the healthy eating revolution in the UAE, with a business that is now firmly on the region’s list of ‘brands to watch’ for 2014.
