Suppliers told to register claim to recover Farmdrop goods

Farmdrop suppliers that have not been paid for goods supplied to the company, and that they wish to recover, should email farmdrop@r-m-t.co.uk as soon as possible to register their claim, advised the administrator.

Christopher Ferguson of RMT Accountants & Business Advisors was appointed administrator of online food business Farmdrop on 17 December by the company’s directors.

The business ceased trading on 16 December, informing its 450 or so suppliers by email.

Many of these are farm-based food producers and growers.

A small number of employees has been retained to support the winding down of the business, said a statement from RMT. 

The winding-down process is expected to be complete early in 2022, it said, adding that it was in discussions with a number of parties interested in the assets of the business. 

Anyone wanting to express an interest in those assets should contact farmdrop@r-m-t.co.uk.
