In-store Greengrocers are here to make sure our produce is pear-fect!

Today we’ve announced we’ll be appointing 150 in-store Greengrocers across the UK from October, as part of a £9m investment to increase the choice and quality of fresh fruit and vegetables available in our stores.

 

The new Greengrocers, made up of both new hires and existing colleagues, will focus on the fresh produce on offer in stores. They’ll be based on the shop floor and will have responsibility for quality standards, product availability and presentation of the produce area, as well as being on hand to support customers.

 

Each new Greengrocer will receive specialist training in all aspects of produce, from how and where fruit and vegetables are grown, to the optimum conditions for storing and displaying produce to keep its freshness and quality.

 

As well as the new recruits, we’re also excited to offer customers a greater choice of fruit and veg from our Extra Special range, and stores will see new fixtures and fittings to improve the presentation and layout of their fresh produce section.

 

Mike Snell, Managing Director of IPL, said: “We know how proud our colleagues are about product quality and store standards, and we’re making this investment to enhance the experience for our customers when shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables.”
