The Speciality Produce Growers Association has changed its name to The Baby Leaf Growers Association to better reflect the activity of its members.

The group meets twice a year with the Horticultural Development Company to direct expenditure of the HDC levy, which pays for a range of projects from herbicide work to EAMU data generation.

Meetings usually include a visit to either a chemical or seed company - most recently Tozer Seeds' spinach and rocket trials - so that members can also learn about the work of the wider industry.

The association also benefits from the British Leafy Salads' Make More of Salad PR campaign. It shares a premises with the British Growers Association in Louth, Lincolnshire.
