Using blue skies thinking to help others

In our series of videos focused on private businesses and entrepreneurs, founder and Chairman of Blue Skies Holdings, Anthony Pile, talks to us about the culture, identity and values of the social enterprise that he’s created.

Blue Skies has been cutting and packing consistently high quality just-harvested fruit products and delivering them to supermarkets across Europe since 1998. Employing over 2000 people in Ghana, Egypt, South Africa and Brazil, this multi-award winning social enterprise is committed to building long term partnerships, and fostering sustainable development in Africa and South America. By nurturing this culture and forging global partnerships Blue Skies has become an ethical model for development to governments all over the world.

In this video, Anthony tells us how Blue Skies began with his vision to crush poverty in Africa and how the farmers they work with, alongside their families and their communities have come together to create a competitive edge that creates benefits for all.
