The Jersey Royal Company
Jersey Royals, synonymous with the start of spring.
The Jersey Royal Company operates from a number of key sites across the island of Jersey and has been established for over 20 years, growing, packing and supplying the internationally recognised and protected Jersey Royal new potato to a wide number of retailers in the UK.
Farming around 8,300 vergées (1,800 ha) annually across 1800 fields, and employing around 450 staff, we produce and pack approximately 20,000 tonnes per year.
Swancote Foods was established in 1995 after an opportunity was identified for the manufacture of cooked potato ingredients.
In 2007 Greenvale AP, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of fresh potatoes acquired Swancote Foods completing their vertically integrated supply chain. The purchase of the business created an opportunity to convert unsuitable retail potatoes into high quality prepared potato ingredients.
