G’S Fresh - Europe’s leading fresh produce company - received a special visit recently.

Cambridgeshire-based MEP Vicky Ford took a break from the election campaign trial to visit the mammoth firm’s Barway site.

The trip was organised by Lucy Frazer QC, the conservative parliamentary candidate for South East Cambridgeshire.

Speaking after her visit, MEP Ford said: “Companies like G’s are key to providing us all with healthy fresh food.

“It is really impressive to hear how they are exporting as far afield as the USA and Russia. I think it is very important to listen to the concerns of business big and small when we are negotiating our relationship with Europe.”

John Shropshire, chairman of G’s Fresh, said: “Being a business that is dependent on a very large amount of trade in Europe, we were delighted to welcome MEP Vicky Ford to G’s.”

G’s farms 11,300 hectares in the UK, Czech Republic and Spain, turning over £370 million and employing around 5,000 people.
