Super Strawberry Season, “This year has been in complete contrast to 2013 with the UK strawberry season starting three weeks early following an exceptionally mild spring, we have supplied over 90% more strawberries to the market between March – June this year compared to last year1”, says Nicholas Marston, Managing Director of Berry Gardens at Fruit Focus. Nicholas continues, “As a co-operative with growers throughout the UK Berry Gardens has been able to meet demand with the early English tunnelled crops followed by Scottish crops which now provide a significant proportion of the UK strawberry production. Strawberries have eaten really well this year and have delivered outstanding quality. Retailers have supported the peak in June and this continued throughout the Wimbledon fortnight with instore support and tactical promotions.”  read more
