Produce Supply Chain - South Holland is the best place to do business?

This report (PDF) produced by Spalding Chamber asks the question, "Where is the best place to operate a fresh produce business in the United Kingdom"?

We have taken the old "Garden of England", Kent and compared it with the new "Kitchen of England", South Holland, to illustrate just how good South Holland really is.
This takes into account the most practical and best cost effective total route to the Supermarket including the processing, packing, labelling, warehousing and distribution for non UK produced goods.


Spalding and District Chamber of Commerce - Value Proposition

 

By offering access to networking, an extensive knowledge base, signposting to business services and opportunities, Chamber members can be more innovative in the way they grow their businesses and look for new opportunities.

Chamber members typically grow faster when they have access to these services, helping to improve their competitive offering.
