Hydroponics company sees opportunity

"UK: Quality of fruit & veg in Leeds "incredibly poor"

Leeds shops and supermarkets are currently stocking fruits and vegetables of dismal quality – this is thought to be because they have now become more difficult to source. In line with this, one local hydroponics equipment supplier, Leeds Hydro Store, is urging all to grow our own vegetables.

Just one of the examples of bad quality produce being sold to the public saw a Leeds retailer ordered to pay a whopping £3,400 fine after selling rotten fruits and vegetables that didn’t meet basic standards. Director of Leeds City Stores Ltd, Mohammad Ozair Siddique, admitted to breaching EU marketing rules for fresh produce following a thorough investigation that went on for a period of seven months by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).

A spokesperson from Leeds Hydro Store said, “We anticipate that, going forward, as the quality of vegetables that can been bought from shops continues to deteriorate, more and more people are going to be looking for alternative ways to source their vegetables, with hydroponics being the most popular choice. This is why we constantly strive to offer affordable yet quality hydroponics equipment to our customers, allowing them to get started without breaking the bank.”
