According to Dutch media, The Greenery has sold NorthBank Growers to APS Salads.
The move comes after Cornerways Nursery last year decided not to renew its marketing agreement with the Dutch group, instead signing five year deal with Thanet Earth to sell its produce. According to a spokesperson The Greenery, which has owned NorthBank Growers since 2012, is currently sourcing other local producers in the UK to serve the British market.
APS Salads is the largest tomato grower in the UK. In May last year they purchased the Wight Salads Group, bringing their total area to 106 hectare, of which 46 is modern glass.
