About

Peppers GreenhouseThe Pepper Technology Group (PTG) is an association of pepper growers supplying high quality produce to all of the major UK supermarkets.  There are over twenty members plus representatives from the Horticultural Development Company (HDC), FEC services, Rijk Zwaan UK, Enza Zaden UK, Koppert UK and Monsanto UK.

The association aims to:

  • Ensure customer satisfaction by supplying a consistently high quality product
  • Promote sustainable and effective methods of crop protection
  • Develop efficient alternative sources of energy and water
  • Provide information to consumers on peppers and pepper growing

 

The PTG was initially setup in February 2003 and became official in 2007 with the first meeting taking place on the 19th July 2007. Members of the PTG boast nearly 100 hectares of sweet peppers and chillies, that’s about 140 million peppers per year!  In recent years there has been a steady growth in pepper production and consumption, but the UK isn’t yet rivalling Holland, the EU’s largest pepper producers with over 1400 hectares.
