Our story

The Fruit People is a family business, founded in 2013 by brothers Barry and Brian Dennis.

Our story starts when Barry was travelling in Australia, in his early 20s. During his trip, he worked for a company that supplied households with farm-fresh produce such as fruit, vegetables and milk. He noticed that this type of delivery service, while common in many countries, was almost totally unknown in Ireland.

Brian was also working abroad at this point, but once both brothers were back home, they launched themselves into the fruit delivery business. As the concept of office fruit boxes was so new, it came down to knocking on doors and demonstrating the benefits of such a service. It was a leap of faith for Barry and Brian, but the appetite was there, and customers were quick to embrace the concept.

The Fruit People’s reputation grew, and soon we were expanding! We initially worked from a building on the family property, but soon outgrew this and moved to a 3,500 m2 unit, where we currently operate from. We will be moving to a new 8,500 m2 unit in 2018.

Both Barry and Brian are passionate about health and fitness, and the whole team shares this ethos. The Fruit People is a socially engaged business, and we care about the role we play in the promotion of workplace nutrition.

Workplace health and wellness

Since The Fruit People was founded, we’ve witnessed a change in the way companies treat their employees, and we are proud to be a small part of that. At the beginning of our journey, Ireland was just out of recession, and companies were very cautious with their budgets. ‘Superfluous’ office costs were low on the list of priorities for an office manager or HR director.

But with multinationals such as Google, Facebook and Amazon bringing a new work culture to offices in Ireland, attracting and retaining employees became a much more competitive exercise for businesses. The trend towards focusing on employees as a valuable business asset, and rewarding them accordingly, has led to an increase in office perks.

Dedicated Health & Wellness officers can be found in many businesses now, and providing fruit boxes is one – extremely cost-effective – way to send a positive health message to employees. The benefits of providing free fruit at work are now well-known. From this minimal investment, companies can expect benefits such as:

  • Increased productivity
  • Better team morale
  • Enhanced health and wellbeing
  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Improved corporate image and reputation
