Named after owner Jenny Van Gemeren, JVG Herbs Limited started trading in June, 2008. Based in Spalding, Lincolnshire the focus was very much on fresh potted herbs. Using the industry experience of it’s owner JVG Herbs built up a successful business supplying a range of locally grown, fresh potted herbs to the retail, foodservice & wholesale sectors.
As time went by & with changes in market conditions leading to a demand for increased consumer convenience, additional premises were secured at Clay Lake Produce Park, Spalding in the summer of 2014. The primary focus of this facility being the added value packing of a range of fresh cut herb products, under the name of JVG Fresh Limited.
Continued growth in the sector over the coming months drove the decision to focus purely on the fresh-cut/convenience range & so the potted herb side of the business was sold to Bridge Farm Nurseries in December 2015.
From this point on JVG Fresh Limited’s focus has been on the continued development of the fresh-cut offer in both own & private label formats direct to retail, foodservice & emerging markets such as online sales.
Raw material is sourced for 52 weeks of the year & the aim is to source locally wherever seasonality will allow us to do so. However when this is not possible we source product from across the globe, from Europe through to the Far East & Africa.
All products are secured from Global Gap & Sedex accredited sources as a minimum. To ensure control of the supply chain all our procurement is done so against a planned programme, agreed in advance with growers that ensures we have total control over our product & its supply chain.
All of our UK growers are Red Tractor assured.
