Award recognises "tireless lobbying" of BIFGA's John Breach

British Independent Fruit Growers' Association (BIFGA) chairman John Breach has been awarded the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers' Lewis Award, "in recognition of the tireless lobbying he has done on behalf of the UK fruit industry".

Breach, who founded BIFGA in 1988, was presented with the award by Cheryl Roux, Master of the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers, at Company's banquet on 13 February 2019.

He has also been a committee member of the National Fruit Show for over 46 years, and played a key role in initiating the Cox and Bramley promotional campaigns.

Recent issues on which he and BIFGA have lobbied include the relationship between multiple retailers and their fresh produce supply.

The Lewis Award was founded in 1968 and is given only every three years to an individual with distinguished achievements in fresh fruit marketing.
