“The level of business interest was very positive at the National Fruit Show this year. The fruit trade is generally buoyant on the back of a good quality crop with prospects of reasonable prices.”
It has to be said that despite a large investment in new packhouses and controlled atmosphere storage over the last few years, there are indications, even without SEEDA grant support, that investments will continue at a reasonable level. Scorpion’s place in the industry, as market leader, remains important and significant based on their improvements and innovations in the types and specifications of their buildings. Rob Kendall reported that one of the most pleasing features of the show was the amount of repeat business.
It's interesting to note that the Scorpion sponsored class 1 for Bramley Apples was won yet again by Nigel & Annette Bardsley who have been Scorpion customers for 15 years.
