Grower / producer
Salad is my Life! From growing it on farm so that we can harvest the best head possible, to managing the development of varieties to excite my customers with tastes, flavours and colours, and then preparing it in the specially designed factories so that we keep those flavours and tastes as fresh as the day it was picked, through to working with chefs and consumers so that their expectations are always met!
The Green Man Growing Co Ltd provides agronomic & technical advice services to the fresh and processed salad and vegetable industries.
The company specialises in the full range of agronomic, growing, harvesting, processing and innovation management for crops & products, pre-packed & prepared salads & vegetables.
Simon has been in the fresh produce industry for all of his working life.
Since 1985 Simon has been working alongside farmers, growers, packers, processors and retailers, developing and implementing agronomic, technical and Total Quality Management Systems to successfully get the product from the farms and factories through to the UK Supermarkets and the consumers.
During that time, Simon has worked with well over 30 different crops in over 30 different countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.
