Produce World, whose companies include Produce World Solanum Ltd at Sutton Bridge, has helped to feed the needy this year.

The UK’s largest grower and supplier of fresh vegetables worked with food distribution charity FareShare for a second time, at the same time raising awareness of food waste in the supply chain.

The company recently repeated the successful gleaning day held last year when charity volunteers and staff members produced 120 trays of vegetables, which provided a free lunch for 5,000 people. Charity workers and staff gleaned Produce World Marshalls’ trial fields containing over 100 different varieties of brassicas.
