Waitrose working to encourage sustainable food production
Suncrop Produce Ltd is a family-owned business that has been supplying Waitrose since 1990. It specialises in producing the finest quality conventional and organic tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers from their leading British and European nurseries, ensuring consistent best quality throughout the year.
Working closely with the major seed breeding houses Suncrops Technical, the Growing and Quality team assesses hundreds of varieties every year to ensure that they are working with the best genetics to provide exceptional flavour and quality.
The predominant challenges faced by the protected cropping industry are energy and water usage, both in terms of cost and sustainability. Sustainability is a cornerstone of our business and involves utilising the best production techniques while having a positive impact on the environment.
