Spud firms negotiate merger
ANGLIAN Produce and Greenvale Produce – who between them handle about 800,000 tonnes of potatoes or 12 % of the UK crop – are discussing possible merger plans.
The combined group would have a turnover of more than £150 million. Both are mainly based in the east of England, but Anglian owns Scottish firm Pseedco and Greenvale has a centre at Birrelton.
