The Raspberry Breeding Consortium

James Hutton Limited manages the breeding programme of the Raspberry Breeding Consortium (RBC); a partnership of growers, marketing groups, propagators, AHDB and Scottish Government.  

The RBC was born out of the need to ensure the UK raspberry industry evolves in line with consumer tastes and trends as well as modern growing and production systems.  Its purpose is to create new, targeted and improved raspberry varieties, a process accelerated via the innovative science of the James Hutton Institute.  Recent successes include Glen Carron, Glen Dee, Glen Ericht and Glen Fyne.
