General Manager Sandy McGowan is currently out in Egypt on business and attended the GECO open day which was situated just off the desert road between Cairo and Alexandria.

The varieties pictured are bred by our partner Agroplant in Holland and Grampian Growers are representing their interests in the UK and Ireland.

The Actrice and FOB number are for the pack trade and the Lisellotte is a New salad type all being extensively trialled both at plot and commercial level in the UK and Ireland. The BU number is a crisper that shows Pallida nematode resistance and is also being commercially trialled across the UK and Ireland.The trials were all looking very promising in Egypt and Grampian Growers are looking forward to working with these in the future.
