Over the past 10 years we have made major investments in green, sustainable energy solutions, including two anaerobic digestion plants and a 100 acre solar farm. We operate 21 hectares of UK tomato production (including a recently built 8 hectare of lit glasshouse which is the most advanced & energy efficient LED site in Europe), in addition to working with our partner growers in Europe, Africa, and North America, to provide high quality tomatoes year-round for our customers.
We are offering a comprehensive 1 year placement programme for student(s) looking to gain unique hands on experience of our supply chain covering green energy production, arable crops, the most advanced greenhouse technology in Europe, and our retail packing operation.
