Processed Vegetables Growers' Association's new base allows for expansion

The Processed Vegetables Growers' Association (PVGA) moved into new offices in Louth, Lincolnshire, earlier this month.

Chief executive Martin Riggall said the move signalled the start of a new era for the organisation. "The offices are large enough for us to recruit in the medium term and the site has potential for development," he explained.

The PVGA is home to crop associations for asparagus, brassicas, herbs, leafy salads, leeks, onions and summer fruits. It also acts as a pea and bean grower co-operatives and includes retail price analysis company Market Intelligence Services. Contacts and phone numbers remain unchanged.
