Albert Bartlett completes Jersey potato company purchase

The acquisition of a Jersey potato company by a UK leading supplier of potatoes has been completed, the UK company says. According to a news report from the BBC, Albert Bartlett – which runs farms across Britain, Ireland, and France – has purchased the Jersey Royal Company (JRC) from Produce Investments.

It comes after approval from the Jersey Competition Regulatory Authority (JCRA).

Alex Bartlett, CEO of Albert Bartlett, said the company had a long history with the island in the production and marketing of Jersey Royal potatoes and in “supporting the future of Jersey agriculture”.

Rachel Cook-Coulson, of Produce Investments, said they were “really proud” of their Jersey business and team. “Following detailed discussions, we believe Albert Bartlett are best placed to take Jersey forward.”
