Travelling across continents, Director, Matt Fowler puts Caravel Ingredients on the map whilst searching the world for quality, sustainable and traceable ingredients destined for both the food & pet industries.

Buitelaar Group’s newest division, Caravel Ingredients was launched in January, 2023. The business sources sustainably grown fruit, vegetables, herbs, spices and botanicals, which are delivered into both worldwide food and pet markets, with customers ranging from small, family run businesses to national organisations.

Behind the scenes, Matt Fowler, Director & Shareholder has been travelling across continents in search of the very best ingredients and most sustainable food solutions, continually working to access new, healthy and food-safe products.

Building strong and transparent relationships with new suppliers across the global ingredients industry, our team have been visiting multiple supply chains to gain true transparency of food quality and ethical production, whilst seeing first-hand the challenges faced by the modern supply chain.

From Asia to South America, the focus has been on sourcing traceable and flavoursome product, whilst remaining wholly aligned with our Group’s family values, which are always at the heart of everything we do.

Visiting a wide variety of soft-fruit producers, farms and operations, we are committed to ensuring our products are responsibly grown, having a positive impact on people and the planet, reflective of our belief that agriculture and nature should work together, not compete.

Operating at the forefront of consumer trends, with over 100 years of experience of supply chains behind the Group (in our agriculture division), our priority is to safeguard continuity of our customers supply in a natural, modern and sustainable manner, combined with excellent service.
