Integreater provides platform for growth for R&G Fresh Herbs
Established in 1958, R&G Fresh Herbs is a third generation family business that has grown into one of the UK’s leading herb suppliers. Today, the company supplies the entire fresh cut herb range to Waitrose and Ocado, alongside major restaurants, wholesalers and foodservice customers. In January 2016 R&G Fresh Herbs chose SI (Systems Integration) to implement Integreater at its plant in Hampshire.
“We are really looking forward to working with Systems Integration at R&G Herbs. We went through a vigorous systems selection process and felt that Systems Integration can provide our business with market-leading consultancy, services and solutions. Integreater’s shop floor data capture suite, traceability and production planning applications will give us a platform to grow further as a business in the future.”
Dean Fowler, General Manager, R&G Herbs

About R&G Fresh Herbs
R&G Fresh Herbs’ original core values still remain to this day and provide a blueprint to ensuring continued customer satisfaction for decades to come.
- premium quality
- technical excellence
- delivering to order
- exceptional product knowledge
Find out more about the care R&G takes every day to ensure the best flavours and quality for all of the herbs are delivered to their customers.
In recent years, R&G has pioneered the research, development and implementation of micro-perforated packaging for the retail and supermarket sectors. This technical innovation substantially reduces product wastage by allowing the packaged herbs to breath, therefore increasing the quality and shelf life, without the need for any artificial preservatives.
