Spud heaven for Fowler Welch

Fowler Welch, which is the sole transport provider for Jersey Royal potatoes, is now moving 1,500 tonnes a day as production reaches its peak.

The Jersey Royal enjoys EU protection of designation of origin and can only be grown on Jersey in the Channel Islands. The Jersey Royal Company will produce a total crop of 25,000 tonnes this year.

The operation is managed from Fowler Welch’s Hilsea consolidation centre with deliveries to almost all the UK’s major supermarket retailers, plus secondary manufacturing sites and wholesale markets.
