UK-based Produce World Group, which is one of the largest expert growers and suppliers of high quality fresh vegetables in Europe, has formed a long-term strategic alliance with LFP (Lincolnshire Field Products) which will be one of its largest growing partners for brassicas for the 2015 harvest. It will work in partnership with LFP and a number of existing key growers.

Jon Campbell, procurement director of Produce World, says: “The Produce World Group is a growing business with ambitious plans over the next five years. We are reviewing our strategies across the group including procurement. In this sector there was an opportunity to work with LFP, which is one of the country’s leading brassica growers. We are delighted to add its experience and expertise to that of our other key growers.

He adds: “As many people will be aware there is considerable pressure on land, as well as consolidation in the industry. It is, therefore, critical to secure the future of the land bank for brassica growing in the light of competition from other crops. We feel this is an important move for the future of brassica growing in Lincolnshire, and will best meet the needs of our customers in the future.”

Produce World Group is a privately owned business, founded by the Burgess family in 1898. Its sourcing is a combination of produce from its own farming division Burgess Farms, joint-ventures, and collaborative working with dedicated grower groups, supplying a variety of root vegetables, potatoes, brassicas, alliums, and organic produce to leading retailers, food service and manufacturing customers.
