Charter flights of vegetable pickers from Eastern Europe ‘will bring experience’


Charter flights bringing Romanian fruit and vegetable pickers to the UK will help ensure there are experienced workers alongside new UK recruits, the British Growers Association has suggested. Up to six flights have reportedly been organised to bring Eastern European farm workers to Britain. The first, carrying 180 Romanian workers, has been chartered by one of the UK’s largest producers of vegetables, G’s Growers, which has its headquarters near Ely in Cambridgeshire.
