UK: Poor potato harvest hits Branston bottom line

Profits have fallen back by 90 per cent at Lincoln-headquartered Branston as a result of a poor potato harvest which hit the UK. Sales at the potato buyer, packer and distributor, however, climbed by almost £20m to £130m. The company, one of the UK’s largest potato businesses, was formed in Lincolnshire in 1968 and today also has sites in the South West, which it bought in 1997, and Scotland, established in 2004.
