Who We Are
The Fresh Produce Consortium (FPC) is the UK's fresh produce trade association and is based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. It has represented the fresh produce sector for many years and is recognised across the UK and EU as the voice of the industry.
Exclusive membership covers the complete spectrum of industry businesses including growers, importers, wholesalers, retailers (both multiple and independent), distributors, processors, packers, food service and other allied organisations such as freight handling, embassies, laboratories, trade media......
The FPC has two primary goals
- to increase consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables in the UK
- to promote responsible and sustainable trading and protect its membership from negative effects of legislation, media etc
Membership benefits are considerable - over the years, the FPC has saved the industry £millions through its intervention and negotiation with UK government departments and EU departments in Brussels where it contributes directly to advisory groups.
The FPC has worked extensively with the Carbon Trust to promote energy efficiency within the industry and is actively developing a carbon footprint strategy.
Nigel Jenney, CEO, and his team have developed a range of services specifically targeted to benefit members' businesses including energy, health & safety, insurance, currency management and more recently HR.
The Consortium is funded by subscription and is enthusiastic to involve additional successful companies to gain as much depth and significance as possible and to assist in achieving and maintaining its goals.
We would be delighted to hear from you regarding any interest you may have and to answer any questions regarding the FPC and its role in today's market, or perhaps it would be beneficial to arrange for Nigel Jenney and members of his team to visit your company to discuss further the benefits of becoming a member.
