As head of the organisation, Philippe is well placed to comment on the current state of the business, and what those various challenges of inflation, climate change and energy supply mean for the fresh produce sector as it navigates its way through 2023.

What big challenges can we expect in the next 12 months? And how can the fruit and veg business overcome them? Our interview with Philippe offers some very useful insight into what might happen on the road ahead.
