The difference when it comes to requesting for quotations for fruit or food items is it requires the number of pax of how many people you plan on feeding.

As for choosing what fruit you'd like for your office, you can select from staple, seasonal and shared fruits.

Staple fruits are fruits you can find all year long like apples, bananas and grapes. Seasonal fruits are only available at certain times and shared fruits are whole fruits that can be cut and eaten by a number of people.
