KINGSVILLE, ONTARIO- The leadership team at Mucci Farms just got a little bit bigger as it has welcomed Phil Johnson as Technical Director of Growing Operations. Wielding over two decades of experience from three different continents, Johnson adds valuable greenhouse growing knowledge to the supplier’s executive ring.

Phil Johnson, Technical Director of Growing Operations, Mucci Farms“My philosophy is not just to focus on using less but also on getting the most out of what you use,” said Johnson. “The team here is very talented, and I’m looking forward to augmenting and refining strategies to ensure the best combination of yield, quality, and flavour.”

Johnson was born and raised in the United Kingdom, where he began his career as a teenager working in greenhouses on the weekends, according to a release. This inspired him to follow his passion for growing, kicking off a 20-year career with Grodan spanning the U.K., New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

“Ironically, when I first relocated to Canada in 2008, the very first greenhouse I walked through was a Mucci farm, and ever since, I’ve enjoyed offering technical support to their talented growers,” added Phil.
