UK: Rescue deal saves jobs at potato supplier

A £9m-turnover pre-packaged potato supplier which works with supermarkets, wholesalers and caterers has fallen into administration after failing to recover from a disastrous harvest in 2012. But administrators at O’Hara & Co have managed to tie up a pre-pack deal for Holme Farm Produce safeguarding jobs and the future of the business. Peter O’Hara and Simon Weir, joint administrators at O’Hara & Co, were appointed to the Rotherham-headquartered business on 21 July 2014. Holme Farm Produce is a family-run business which has been trading since 1983 and washes, grades and packs potatoes into approximately 50 different product specifications.
