Managing director Mark Tweddle, 41, started this Shropshire firm in 2003. An agriculture student who worked with livestock, he turned his attention to produce after working on a lettuce farm as a holiday job. Jupiter grows, buys and distributes fruit, and has overseas sales and procurement offices from Argentina to India. Last year exports hit £11m and the company acquired the South African fresh produce company Bonaire.
