Introduction from Perfectly Fresh:
We are a privately owned business, using our own growing expertise and technology to grow “perfect plants” for our customers. Currently we grow premium salad leaves for Marks & Spencer Plc in the UK, our R&D programme will enable us to diversify into new market segments and product areas. We germinate, grow and harvest under high care conditions, meaning our product is ready to eat without washing.
We operate two sites based in Selby and Alderley Edge. Within our R&D facilities, we are pioneers in ventures beyond ready to eat fresh produce, developing our vertical growing prowess to discover novel plant based solutions.
We intend to enable land and soil recovery, food sovereignty to communities, and grow crops typically sourced globally here in the UK reducing the GHG impact (Scope 3) of our market partners.
Perfectly Fresh’s superb quality is achieved with the highest environmental commitment. Our state-of-the-art technology is sustainably supporting our journey to net carbon zero by 2030.
