Fresh Group chief executive Julie Besbrode said: "The Fresh Group starts 2011 with a host of new starters and a busy order book. We’re confident this will be another successful year for the business, working with existing and new clients as we continue to expand and enhance our offering."

Santander has tasked Fresh with producing its annual convention at Earls Court next month.
