Combined UK Brassica & Leafy Salad Conference

by Julia Hall-Jones

We are delighted to announce that the UK Brassica Growers’ Association and British Leafy Salad Association have joined together to hold their first combined Conference. The date for your diaries is Wednesday 28th January 2015.

The Conference will be held at the KingsGate Conference Centre, 2 Staplee Way, Parnwell, Peterborough, PE1 4YT. The programme will include both marketing and technical presentations from within the UK and around the world.

As both Associations are hosting this event we expect a large number of delegates to attend, from all sectors of the industry, including growers, packers, agronomists, allied industry representatives and customers from the retail, wholesale and food service sectors. A trade exhibition will take place alongside the conference.

There will be a gala dinner held after the event at the Holiday Inn, Peterborough. This will be dedicated to the late David Piccaver who sadly passed away in December and who is greatly missed by the industry.
