Haygrove was founded in 1988 by Angus Davison, and began as a strawberry growing degree project on 1 hectare of rented land in Herefordshire, UK. This original farming business has steadily expanded in geography and techniques to become an all-year-round berry, and long season cherry and organic grower, supplying the best retailers in the UK, Europe, and South Africa. In 1994 they started protecting crops from challenging UK weather.
The firm GIVREX (Robert Mansour & Co.) is privately owned by the Mansour family in Alexandria, Egypt. They are actively specialized since 1978 in the production and export of all types of Egyptian Frozen Fruits and Vegetables that are highly selected and of choice quality.
