The Produce World Group, which has a site in Sutton Bridge, is celebrating its most organic Christmas ever.

The company says UK consumers are buying more organic vegetables than ever. Compared to the end of 2013, the volume per buyer of organic vegetables increased by 6.7 per cent in 2014 compared to last year.

Organic broccoli has been the star performer with an increase of 19.9 per cent, though organic carrots have also done well with consumer purchases increasing by 5.6 per cent, while all organic root vegetables were up five per cent overall.

In Christmas week, Produce World will distribute five times the amount of parsnips to normal and harvest 950,000 kilos of sprouts.
