Salad washing plant to close – Itchen benefits from tough approach

In England, Guy Linley-Adams assisted Salmon & Trout Conservation UK to bring a notification under the Environmental Liability Directive in relation to pesticide residues being washed off imported salad into the headwaters of the Itchen.

Now, the salad washing plant, run by Bakkavor, has announced its closure.  The pressure being brought to bear as a result of the notification to the Environment Agency is understood to have played a significant part in the decision to close the salad importing and washing business.
