By volume and value, one of our biggest selling products, and a fruit on which we’ve built a reputation for quality. Our grape procurement team travel the world to maintain our grower partnerships and to assure ourselves and our retailers that we are up to speed on the latest industry developments, on good grape agronomy and on efficient supply chain practices.
New variety development features strongly in our work on grapes, with participation in NPD trials with growers in key locations. We are constantly working to improve the quality of grapes available, particularly at the shoulders of seasons. This combines with technical trials on shelflife extension, through modified atmosphere packaging and good practice in product storage. Our packing for grapes takes place under controlled conditions both at source and in our packing factory at our Evesham headquarters.
