An economically, environmentally and socially sustainable business.

Hughes Group takes CSR (corporate social responsibility) seriously – being a trustworthy and valued member of our local community, our business community and our industry sector are all central to our ethos as a company.


The introduction of solar and biomass power, together with the construction of a waste water treatment centre has already made a significant impact in terms of reducing our carbon footprint and, at the same time, we have been protecting the architectural heritage of the original train station buildings on our site.

A family business

Steeped in family values and tradition, at Hughes Group we are committed to our community and environment. We care about people, our farmers and our staff and work to encompass sustainability in all that we do.

Fair employment

As an employer, we value our people highly and, in addition to standard human resources procedures, we are guided by a Modern Slavery policy to protect our international workforce and a gender pay gap policy to remove any imbalance in our treatment of staff.

With regards to both employees and customers, we have recently updated our data protection policy in line with the latest legislation.

Each one of our growers is fully certified by Assured Produce and Global Gap. Our state of the art packing facilities have attained BRC accreditation and every member of staff holds a Food Hygiene Certificate.
