With the much-loved FPC Fresh Awards returning this year, celebrity presenter, Chris Bavin, joined Chief Executive of the Fresh Produce Industry (FPC) Nigel Jenney to talk about recognising the unsung heroes of the fresh produce industry.
The episode on popular podcast show, Tech Uncorked, discussed the many challenges surrounding the industry and the resilience of those working within it.
"When the chips are down, and it really matters, I wouldn't want anyone else in my corner than someone from the fresh produce business." Chris explained. "Because no matter what, when it matters, they're there."
"Our industry has been totally committed to feeding the nation and flowering the nation through this very difficult period of the last year or so," Nigel continued.
"I think one of the things that FPC does extremely well is that we are the voice of the industry for the whole of the produce industry - from grower, all the way through to multiple retailer, everything in between, and much, much more."
