C & M Watermelon Imports Ltd is a family business founded by Chris “Melon Man” Charalambides. From the outset, in 1973, Chris has been regarded as the leading supplier of watermelons in the UK.
Chris’ strength lies in the fact that he continues to source the best watermelons, at the best quality, at the largest volume, at the most competitive prices from across Europe, Africa and Asia.
Unique amongst his competitors, Chris’s vast experience and exclusive contacts ensures the highest quality crop year-after-year. Crucially, he takes a direct and active involvement in the planting, growing and cutting of the watermelons keeping an ever watchful eye for the quality that is his signature.
While Chris is in the fields, watching over the watermelons, the London office is led by his daughter Aliki. She has been in partnership with her father for over 15 years and ensures that the UK market is stocked with watermelons throughout the season. Aliki is assisted by her experienced and friendly team.
