The Cucumber Growers’ Association (CGA) exists to look after the collective interests of the UK cucumber industry and, where possible, anticipate and prepare for new challenges.

The Cucumber Growers’ Association was established in November 2000 following an inaugural meeting / conference at Stockbridge Technology Centre. It has since formed a formal constitution, published its objectives and a research and development strategy, and become recognised by official organisations as the voice of the cucumber industry.

There are currently 70 CGA members and the growers represent over 95% of the UK cucumber area. The Chaiman of the CGA is Trevor Broekhuizen from Anchor Nurseries, East Yorkshire. There are 18 Main Committee members.
