The 28th January 2016 saw Chaucer hold its first Annual Growers Awards ceremony in Weifang China, where the team celebrated and recognised our growing partners from across China region. The event celebrated and thanked our partners for their continued hard work in achieving Chaucer standards of excellence in both growing standards and food safety management.
During the event the Chaucer Team took the opportunity to also launch the new Chaucer Growing quality culture initiative which encompasses three ethical and commonly shared values; Integration, Quality and Sustainability. This new reinforced approach means that Chaucer will continue to work ever closer with our growing partners so that we can produce together the very highest quality fruits combined with the highest standards of safety in a sustainable way to benefit the environment. In doing so our dedicated agricultural team will continue to demonstrate Chaucer’s support to the growers, their farms and assist in their further development.
Nigel Nelson; Chief Operating Office; emphasized that Chaucer was committed to the continued growth of the business and that our suppliers are key to this. He strongly encouraged our suppliers to engage with these new shared values, to work with the agricultural team to increase their growing activities and finished the evening wishing every participant prosperity for the coming Chinese Year of the Monkey.
