A C Goatham – Fresh Awards Innovation of the Year

28 June 2017

A C Goatham is the winner of the Fresh Awards Innovation of the Year, sponsored by Fowler Welch.

A C Goatham has implemented a major programme of investment in producing Conference pears, including acquisition of new land, infrastructure, new technology used in grading and packing, cold storage, and the largest programme of pear planting for over 40 years.  

Only 10% of Conference Pears sold in the UK are grown in Britain. By revitalising traditional growing methods with the latest technology and good soil management, A C Goatham is set to revive the fortunes of British Conference pears.

“We commend A C Goatham’s tremendous commitment and investment in reviving the fortunes of British Conference pears,” said Nigel Jenney, Chief Executive of the Fresh Produce Consortium.

The Fresh Award for Innovation of the Year was presented by Nick Hay of Fowler Welch, in front of an audience of 500 people at the gala evening, hosted by British comedian, actor and broadcaster Hugh Dennis at the Intercontinental Park Lane on Thursday 8 June 2017.
