The Anglia Growing Partnership is 50/50 joint-venture between Nationwide Produce PLC and QV Foods.
This is a prime example of collaboration in order to reduce costs and enable efficient whole-crop marketing. Nationwide and QV complement each other with customers in every sector of the market.
Together both companies market just over 80,000 tonnes of onions and grow 400 acres. The AGP site now produces over a quarter of a million packs of onions per week. By sharing this resource at Long Sutton, Nationwide Produce and QV Foods have committed to a healthy tonnage flowing through the site and to continue to work together to market the whole crop effectively and efficiently.
Growing and packing onions on such a large scale has helped us to forge strong relationships with retailers, wholesalers, catering/food-service suppliers, processors and many more.
