Providing freshly prepared vegetables since 1970
In 1970 the Lawrence family, then market gardeners in Merriott (South Somerset), bought a small prepared potato business in Weymouth. At this time, the business was preparing potatoes for the chip shop and restaurant trade which flourished in the sea-side town.
In 1990 the factory moved to the Granby Industrial Estate in Weymouth. The business quickly expanded to become Express Potato Supply, one of the first fresh prepared vegetable producers in the country. In 2001 the Company became incorporated.
Express Potato Supply Limited is a West Country business through and through with:
A long tradition within the fruit and vegetable business
One of the first fresh vegetable peelers in the country
Great knowledge of the peeling industry
A strong team of efficient staff with many years of experience
Well established relationships with regional growers and merchants
Contracts with local farmers
Long term users of West Country potatoes, carrots, swedes, parsnips and leeks
Sourcing imported produce through a West Country Importer
Situated on the Granby Industrial Estate, our factory can store 300 tonnes of vegetables on site in temperature controlled storage.
Our modern machinery is capable of processing up to 20 tonnes of vegetables per day. In addition to peeling, our machinery can slice and dice to whatever specified size our customers require. We also hand cut to specification as required.
In addition to processed vegetables for the food industry, we now offer boxes of fresh vegetables, fresh fruit & fresh salad in various sizes to the general public. All contents vary according to seasonal availability. These can be collected direct from our factory or delivered by our delivery partners GrowCart or Craig's Farm Dairy.
Managing Director Nigel Lawrence works closely with Production Director Barry Chard at our Weymouth factory, supervising an efficient and enthusiastic team 364 days a year.
MORE THAN JUST POTATOES
In addition to processing the potatoes which give us our name, we supply vegetables from aubergine to zucchini in a wide variety of cuts. If you have a particular specification, contact our team to discuss your requirements.
