Western International Market is to be rebuilt at a cost of £12.5m on the same site at Heston, near London Airport. This week, George Bray, chairman of the 70 strong tenants' association, signed a co-operation agreement with landlords Houslow Council and developers John Laing. Bray said the move was necessary to meet EU food hygiene regulations. The single story building , which will be two thirds the size, reflecting the shrinking sector of the industry, would also include preparation and storage facilities. Bray believes this type of service will allow the market, which has a turnover of between £300­£350m, to continue to expand. The tenants expect to be installed by Easter 2004. {{M/E FRESH PRODUCE }}
