Produce World Group is one of the UK’s largest growers and suppliers of fresh produce, supplying into most high street retailers and into food manufacturers. Employing 800 people across five sites, this fourth generation business is right at the heart of the huge changes taking place in the grocery market as the classic ‘discounter’ model represented by Aldi and Lidl continues to show significant growth. This commercial context, coupled with the impact of the National Living Wage, means that Produce World Group is implementing fundamental changes in order to be fit for the future.
