The Produce World Group’s site at Sutton Bridge has become one of only 61 companies across the globe to receive the prestigious Sword of Honour awarded by the British Safety Council for excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work.

In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, an organisation first has to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety management audit scheme between August 2014 and July 2015. These companies have also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts that they are excellent in their health and safety throughout the business – from the shop floor to the boardroom.

Produce World’s Site Operations Director for the Sutton Bridge site, Katie Stark, says: “This is a fantastic endorsement for the work of the whole team at Produce World’s site at Sutton Bridge. Achieving the best possible scores in health and safety is important in itself, but the most critical thing is that excellence in this aspect of our business drives business performance and helps us to successfully meet the needs of our customers.”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, says: “These awards recognise and celebrate the excellence of the winning organisations and their employees in managing health, safety and environmental risks. All of the Sword and Globe winning organisations share a commitment and resolve to achieving the highest standards of health, safety and/or environmental management. We are delighted that they are partners in helping achieve our vision that no one should be injured or made ill at work.”

The Produce World Group grows and supplies quality fresh vegetables. It is the largest supplier in the UK, providing produce into major retailers, food service and food manufacturing customers. Crops supplied by the group include potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions, leaks, garlic, cabbage, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. As well as conventionally grown vegetables, the Produce World Group is a leader in the organic category.
