We have had superb results during the 2020 harvest season, with many varieties going forward for National Listing

The partnership of E. Park & Sons, Grampian Growers and Skea Organics (GPS) was established in 2012.

Company Research Initiatives

Running alongside our NPD programme are a number of company research initiatives which ensure that we drive forward our long term goals of: increasing quality attributes such as skin finish and taste; finding more sustainable varieties; and increasing packing yields and commercials. These goals allow our supply chain to develop, excel and most importantly, mitigate against ongoing risks facing our industry.

Working closely with our growers ensures that our company research initiatives benefits all parties. Through shared information with the growers, the breeders and the customer, we are able to ensure that the correct variety is used in the appropriate situation, so as to meet the long term goals of our initiatives.

Looking after the needs of our growers is of paramount importance to us

We supply seed to our growers and buy back the ware. Our fieldsmen visit the farms to ensure that the crops are healthy and looking good before coming into the Packhouse. Agronomic support is always available to our growers whenever it is needed.
