Kettle Produce Ltd.
Not open to the public.
Kettle Produce Ltd was established in 1985 by two farming families from Fife, Scotland, who have been working in partnership with other growers since 1976 - there are now over 50 partnership farmers. As growers, processors and marketers of roots, brassicas, salads and prepared vegetables, they serve multiple supermarket and food service businesses in the UK. In 2003, Kettle Produce Espana SL was formed as a joint venture based in Murcia, Spain, and there are also several strategic supply partnerships with major growers in England, France, Spain and Portugal. In total, there are over 6,000 hectares of crops grown across the UK and Continental Europe. Kettle Produce Ltd has two main sites of production, Balmalcolm and Orkie, which are located two miles apart. The Balmalcolm site operations include brassicas, salads and prepared vegetables, and is also the administrative centre. The Orkie site handles all root washing, grading and packing.
