PVGA offices on the move

AFTER 42 years operating from the centre of Louth, the Processed Vegetable Growers Association (PVGA) have moved into brand new purpose-built offices at PVGA House in Nottingham Road in the town.

The association, which is home to crop associations, pea and bean grower co-operatives and the retail price analysis company Market Intelligence Services, moved there this month.

Chief executive Martin Riggall said: “The offices signal the start of a new era for the PVGA. The business has changed dramatically in the past 10 years as our industry has consolidated and we are now looking to the future and making sure that we are best positioned to adapt the new challenges that we will face.

“Part of this is being able to expand and adapt and the new offices give us this flexibility. They are large enough for us to recruit in the medium term and the site has further development potential should we wish to build more offices.”

The PVGA was formed in 1969 and currently has 11 staff.
