Best for Innovation.
We are delighted to be crowned winners of the FPC Fresh Awards 2017 Innovation of the Year, for our work with British Conference Pears.
We have implemented a major programme of investment in producing Conference Pears including the acquisition of new land, infrastructure, new technology used in grading and packing, cold storage, ripening rooms and the largest programme of pear planting in the UK for over 40 years.
Only 10% of Conference Pears sold in the UK are grown in Britain. By revitalising traditional growing methods with the latest technology and soil management, we are reviving the fortunes of this delicious and staple of the British fruit bowl.
