Most products will come from the UK but some come from Poland, Belgium and Holland. Being based in the heart of the top fruit growing area in Kent and working in Hutchinsons new depot in Canterbury means I am perfectly placed to support our experienced horticultural team and our growers. I am really looking forward to making a contribution to such a dedicated and experienced team,” says Mr Williams.
