The Fruit Cube delivers company and personal fruit orders to boost employee wellness and encourage healthy living.

The simple company ensures that you steer clear of the office vending machine at all costs and avoid the remorse and energy-slump that often follows after eating unhealthy foods.

It is the easy access to a healthy snacking alternative that has placed The Fruit Cube among the finalists of the 2015's Small Business Awards with CapeTalk and Sage One.

The Fruit Cube prides itself in providing fresh, top quality fruit to offices on a weekly basis and create a convenient way for companies to boost employee well-being and productivity.

According to co-owner Andrew Scott, the simple business concept has grown since the start of the company last year.

It's an amazing experience to start and grow a business from scratch. We have fantastic suppliers and pack-houses that have helped us to get where we are. We're confident in our business.

Andrew Scott, co-owner of The Fruit Cube

All orders are conveniently managed online and customers benefit from free delivery, making this an easy and affordable investment in human capital and a very tangible staff benefit.

Scott says that the Fruit Cube currently delivers several hundred fresh fruit boxes each week.

The majority of our customers are companies who order for their staff, but they also welcome orders from individual professionals who would like to have their fruit delivered to the office for personal use.
