The Great Fruit Adventure - Africa

The Great Fruit & Veg Adventure began its journey when Max and Gareth set off on two Triumph motorcycles from New Spitalfields Market in London in November 2016…. travelling some 18,000 kilometres, through 18 countries, meeting and greeting over 5,000 school children and experiencing first hand life on fresh produce farms throughout Africa.

2 men, 18 countries, 18,000 km, ONE Mission – meet, learn and educate about fresh produce.  London to Africa – DONE!

Great Fruit Adventure

An amazing initiative to excite kids, their schools and their families to BUY, ENJOY and CONSUME more fresh produce.

With ongoing childhood obesity and health issues globally, combined with more food businesses looking to sell high margin sugary drinks and snack products to an ever younger audience, we want to make a difference.
Did you know…
  • The cost of obesity to the NHS in the UK is £5 billion per year
  • Fruit & Veg consumption are critical to tackling type two diabetes
  • Obesity is the number 3 global social burden after smoking and war/terrorism
  • The UK consumes 240g of fruit and veg a day but the recommendation is 400g
  • Children consume up to 85% more fruit and veg when they have fun names or shapes
