Nigel Jenney, CEO of the FPC, adds: “The collaboration of the teams at The London Produce Show and Conference and the Fresh Produce Consortium has brought to the UK fresh produce industry a unique partnership.
“This is reaping the positive result of bringing the global produce industry to the UK to reinforce the opportunity of trading with the UK both pre- and post-Brexit, which is especially important considering the UK imports two-thirds of its fresh fruit and vegetable supply.
