Presenting the award, master of the Worshipful Company of Fruiterers Jane Anderson said: "Theresa is a very strong supporter of the UK fruit industry and has pressed hard for the interests of UK growers and for the supermarkets to give support on their shelves for UK produce."

Anderson also praised Huxley's role in establishing the trial fruit orchards which bear her name at Hadlow and Pershore colleges, and added: "Theresa is passionate about encouraging young people to develop the skills essential for safeguarding the future of British apple production."
