UK businesswoman spurs 'organic growth' in Dubai

The desert of the UAE may not be a place you would expect to find much organic farming. But the discovery that such an industry existed inspired UK-born Becky Balderstone and her husband James to launch their own business.

And after seeing the popularity of the fruit and vegetable home delivery companies such as Abel & Cole in the UK, the Balderstones thought something similar might succeed in the UAE if they could source enough produce.

Simon Atkinson went to meet Mrs Balderstone, Founder of Ripe, in Dubai.
