At Ripe we understand that great food can only be made with the best ingredients, and that when you prepare a meal, whether for yourself, your family or friends, only the freshest, tastiest produce will do!

Ripe is about going back to basics. Sourcing the best ingredients starts with the farmers we work with: we handpick with the best organic-certified farmers in the UAE to bring you the freshest organic fruit and veggies that have been put to the taste test.

We know chefs are just as passionate about where their ingredients come from as we are, and that’s why we’ve created the Ripe Chefs Club. The Ripe Chefs Club is a one-stop spot to help professional chefs reconnect with their roots, by providing them with local, organic produce for personal use, and giving them chef-worthy perks, while connecting them to the Ripe foodie community.
