Our Facilities

We can pack your potatoes into returnable trays, paper sacks and cardboard boxes, from 500g to 25kg.

We have commenced work on our new purpose-built Packhouse at our Head Office site in Macclesfield, with the aimed completion date being Autumn 2024. The site will have the ability to supply loose flow product and pre-packed potatoes in any bespoke size formats to cater for our customers’ needs. In addition, the site will have a state-of-the-art vehicle repair garage which will better enable us to repair and maintain our fleet of vehicles.

In line with our environmental policy, the site will use recycled water to wash the potatoes. In addition, solar panels will be installed to provide renewable energy to power the facility.

Potatoes have been programmed to be grown by local growers and delivered to our Cheshire site, so as to keep our food miles to a minimum.

Our Packhouse near Doncaster operates 7 days a week. We pack to order so all our deliveries are at optimum quality.
