It is with sadness that we have learnt of the death of Doug Henderson, former Chief Executive Officer of the Fresh Produce Consortium.
Doug Henderson joined FPC in 1994 and headed the UK’s trade association until his retirement in 2004. Over his tenure Doug worked to promote the industry and to increase consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables.
In 2002 Doug was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to UK fresh produce. He was also awarded an honorary fellowship of the University of Wales, Bangor, for his role in the government’s Schools Fruit and Veg Scheme, providing free fruit and vegetables to young children.
There will be a memorial service at St Martin's Church, High St, Stamford PE9 2LF at 12 noon on Thursday 23 January.
