In early 2020 in the days before lockdown, I had the opportunity to look at the fresh produce industry in New Zealand and see what the UK might learn from them and the way they operate. I was accompanied on the trip by Ali Capper, Chair of the NFU Horticulture and Potatoes Board, Chris Moncrief from the RHS, Ruth Ashfield from AHDB and Lucy Jackson from Defra.
The report explains were we went, who we spoke to, what we saw and more importantly our recommendations for the UK fresh produce industry.
