About Us

We are a vertically integrated operation, growing, packing and marketing the finest fresh salad and vegetable crops. The company is a family business with an enthusiasm and passion for what they do. Caring for the environment is at the heart of the company vision, and we take a sustainable approach to food production from utilising waste, reducing water usage and chemical inputs, to producing their own gas and electricity.

Our customers include Sainsburys, Waitrose, Morrison, Aldi, Asda, Iceland, the Co-operative, Nandos, and even Walkers where our tomatoes are used to flavour their crisps.

Our business was built on growing spring onions, moving into speciality tomatoes in the 1990s. Now we are one of the largest tomato businesses in the UK.

 

Modern Slavery Policy Statement

 

EVG takes a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to ensuring that they do not take place in our business, and we take steps to ensure that they don't take place in our supply chain. These steps are monitored on a regular basis.

We are focussed on achieving a supply chain that is free from all forms of exploitation.  We support workers to come forward to raise any concerns they may have, whether relating to their work, their colleagues, or otherwise. We expect our suppliers to echo our values, and support our efforts to ensure continued compliance. EVG conducts regular audits of our own operations and those of our wider supply chain to identify risks, improved awareness, and address any issues.

A senior Director has been tasked to champion ethical trading throughout our business. This ensures that this issue shall receive the attention and support of everyone at EVG, and we continue to remain a fair and rewarding place to work for all our staff, suppliers and customers.
