Claim Value: £168,000
A Hampshire-based specialist fruit grower has received £168,000 through their first ever R&D Tax Credits claim. The business grows, packs and distributes all fruits to supermarkets across the country. They carry out research and development methods for growing fruit under protection from the weather which also results in better working conditions for staff.
Research and development, such as trial areas for growing the fruits, is vital for responding to customer requirements including the supply of a variety of fruits throughout the year. The fruit growers also established a conservation plan in partnership with the RSPB to enhance natural biodiversity and monitor the local wildlife.
