Produce World Sutton Bridge has been celebrating the quality of its potato growers at its Waitrose Grower Day.
Produce World, which describes itself as the UK’s largest grower and supplier of fresh, high quality vegetables, runs its potato operations from the Sutton Bridge site.
The award for Grower of the Year 2013/14 went to Frederick Haim Ltd, of Suffolk, and the award for Outstanding Potato Quality for season 2013/14 went to Stevenson Brothers, from Essex.
• In the 2014 UK Grower Awards, Produce World was awarded Best New Edible Variety. The winning vegetable is a Chinese leaf called Tatsoi, a traditional vegetable in Asia, but Produce World is the first company to produce it commercially in the UK.
