Ripe Fruit & Veg Market Company Information
THE RIPE STORY
Ripe is UAE’s leading provider for 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 in the UAE, like she could in the UK and elsewhere. It was then that the Ripe seed was first planted and Ripe Organic 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 2018.
WHAT WE DO?
We pick the best quality, seasonal fruits and vegetables, from local, organic farms, making it easily accessible and affordable through our Farm Shops and Home Delivery.
In addition to our organic fruit and vegetables, Ripe stocks a whole host of organic produce including meat, eggs, milk, honey, tea, dairy alternatives, superfoods, and a full list of pantry items to both wholesale and direct consumers.
We initially started with the Ripe Boxes that went down such a treat that the company has grown fast; we now have our own Ripe Farm Shops located in Al Manara, Shoreline 8 at The Palm, Town Centre in Jumeirah and Park Centre Mall in Mirdif and a number of weekly Ripe Food & Craft Markets in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Ripe also offers deliveries to select corporate customers.
HOW WE DO IT
As a community led business, with the aim of making local organic produce easily accessible and affordable to all, Ripe has built strong relationships with local farms, which means that we can offer a consistent, regular and diverse range of products, complimented by great customer service.
Ripe currently operates through a number of different distribution channels, from Ripe retail stores in Dubai, home deliveries via online ordering, community collection point deliveries, arts and craft markets, and corporate orders, including hotels, restaurants and niche, gourmet retail outlets.
Ripe’s client relationships are its strength. Through social media, direct marketing and face to face communication at markets and events, Ripe reaches thousands of like-minded individuals daily, all of whom share a mutual passion for the community and supporting local, fresh produce.

Ripe is not just a business but a catalyst; we’re planting seeds throughout the community to ensure we not only support and nourish the local farmers, but provide a platform for young, talented artisans in the UAE to grow and develop. And we believe educating the next generation of eaters, growers, makers and bakers is just as important. Which is why we launched Raising with Ripe, a fundraising initiative for schools to encourage healthier eating among children.
Our farm is ripening up nicely and after a lot of hard work, we’re ready for action! We have the tools needed to grow a variety of fruits and veggies, year round and we can work Ripe also works with a number of local farmers in UAE, who are handpicked for their organic farming techniques, eco-friendly operating systems and local and international organic certifications.
