Growing through diversification of our products and customer base.
The board firmly believes in this strategy and if well executed, will deliver sustainable value growth to all stakeholders and shareholders of the business.
Recent acquisitions of Rowe Farming and The Jersey Royal Company demonstrates the ability of the management team to successful deliver and integrate new businesses within the expanding group. We continue to seek quality businesses.
We continue to look to grow the core business with both existing and new customers. The group, at its core, is a unique vertically integrated potato business covering seed development, production of seed, own growing, through to storage, packing and distribution of fresh potato and is ideally placed to take advantage of any opportunity.
The recent acquisitions have added a number of important strategic elements to the group. The new products will allow management to target new customers.
Our strategy is to seek opportunities that provide growth outside the fresh potato sector. This could come from processed products, daffodil cut flowers or bulbs, or other fresh vegetables where our key strengths in commercial and supply chain management can add value and deliver synergies.
