NICE, FRANCE, July 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The delivery of the sun-ripened fruit, a firm favorite with children, comes as families from across Europe descend on the French Riviera for the long summer holidays. Schools in France break up later this week, as do many independent schools in the UK.
The peaches - like all the fresh fruit and vegetables that are sourced by Gourmet Deliveries for their chalet, villa and yacht supplies - have been especially selected by our team of experts for their quality and their sweetness.
Each peach has been individually checked and packaged to avoid bruising and damage, and then transported directly to our main warehouse based in the MIN market in Nice, the largest fresh produce market on the French Riviera.
The high quality of Gourmet Deliveries' peaches is all the more note-worthy considering the poor harvest across Europe this year, due to the bad weather over much of the continent this spring. Production figures are expected to have decreased by 7 per cent.
In France, the number of peaches produced has been falling steadily over the last ten years. Between 2000 and 2010 the production of peaches in France decreased from 450,000 to less than 300,000 tons, according to the Centro Servizi Ortofrutticoli.
Meanwhile, another product which is increasingly hard to find in supermarkets yet readily available through Gourmet Deliveries' is Premium Gold Wagyu beef.
Wagyu beef is top quality meat which comes from a Japanese cow. In fact, the word 'wagyu' roughly translates as 'Japanese cattle', and virtually all animals that are raised in Japan usually qualify.
Wagyu beef is a gourmet meat which is dense in fat, highly marbled and extremely tender. Our supply of 9/11 Premium Gold Wagyu beef is sourced from the very best Japanese butchers and like all our gourmet products can be delivered to your luxury villa or yacht in a matter of hours by airfreight.
All our gourmet products are brought to your door in refrigerated vehicles, having been stored in our professional cold rooms with extra care being taken to ensure that the produce - in this case the 9/11 Premium Gold Wagyu beef - does not undergo temperature change.
Our team of experts at Gourmet Deliveries consists of local specialists with market, hotel and yachting experience. They have all been in France for many years and are ready to help you find whatever luxury produce you desire - or require.
