S&A Produce has been honoured with a King’s Award for Enterprise – Innovation.

S&A is one of 252 organisations nationally to be recognised with a prestigious King’s Award for Enterprise.

Announced today, S&A has been recognised for its excellence in Innovation.

A total of 257 Awards are made with five companies being recognised with two Awards.

The unique S&A TLC model of knowledge exchange (KE) has been recognised as a key part of our award.

It supports and delivers a sustainable and resilient return for independent growers, their colleagues and the communities where they live and work.

Our grower partners feedback confirms our genetics are transformative and lead the future of modern soft fruit production through the full supply chain from breeding to propagation through grower and customers.

The King’s Awards for Enterprise, previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, were renamed last year to reflect His Majesty The King’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II’s by recognising outstanding UK businesses.

The Award programme, now in its 58th year, is the most prestigious business award in the country, with successful businesses able to use the esteemed King’s Awards Emblem for the next five years.
