JEANINE FISSENEWERT

Jeanine Fissenewert grew up under a bunch of fruit trees in a small town near Hildesheim and came to Berlin in 1989 after being a hotel manageress in Gottingen. In Berlin, she worked for Interconti and Schweizerhof and as chief secretary at the Herzzentrum before giving birth to two children and after that working independently as office manageress  for various enterprises.

Why not falling for the sphere of luxury? I love it and it is my highest priority to offer luxury moments. It is my wish to help people live in a better working environment and a healthy lifestyle. Enjoy yourself every week with the most delicious, freshest fruits and green smoothies. Service is my purpose - If you are happy with our service, it is a great pleasure to me.

AUSIE LETANG

Ausie was born on the Caribbean Island of Dominica and grew up in England, served in the military for 10 years before he went into the oil industry. During his military service he was located in Germany, where he fell in love with the country and the German people. After learning the language and working as a translator, he moved to Berlin where he lives today.

Where I come from, we can chat about the taste and the quality of fresh foods for hours, we would even start trouble about it. Dominica, a Caribbean Island between Guadeloupe and Martinique is known to be the Caribbean’s stomach. We are very proud of our nature and with how many different fruits it provides us. When I was a child, no tree was too tall when I saw sweet grapefruits or aromatic mangos. Later in England I was active on the market to raise my pocket money. Until today, it is my passion to search the market for the best products. I love to bring in my zeal into Fruit Box Berlin.
