This group includes exotic fruits (e.g. mangoes, papayas, pineapples, avocados), raw stone fruits (e.g. peaches, apricots), and oranges as well as vegetables (e.g. peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers).
Group 2 consists of products that are sensitive to lower temperatures with a longer shelf life. It is often delivered in raw conditions.
