Angus Soft Fruits Shortlisted for Prestigious AwardsNeil Hardie
Angus Soft Fruits, the Scottish Berry grower and supplier, has been shortlisted for two prestigious awards at this year’s Horticulture Week Business Awards.
Recognised for its high-quality taste, texture and appearance, Angus Soft Fruit’s AVA Star Strawberry has been nominated in the ‘Best New Edible Crop Variety’ category.
AVA Star has been carefully bred to have improved taste, texture, appearance, disease resistance and yield to existing varieties through development by Angus Soft Fruits’ breeding programme.
Allen Innes, Farm Manager at East Seaton Farm in Arbroath, has been nominated for ‘Soft Fruit Grower of the Year’. Continuously exceeding growing standards, Allen uses his wealth of experience to regulate crops and encourage new growth, delivering a consistently significant yield of high-quality berries.
The shortlist features entrants who are up for one or more awards – and includes leading businesses from garden retail, landscape design, build and maintenance, ornamental plant production, fruit growing and arboriculture.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards reception and presentation hosted by Horticulture Week at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square on the evening of the 28th June.
