Salads To Go

When Stephen Rogers and Julie Bolton bought this company in 2000, it had one small production line making pre-prepared leaf salads for four customers. Now it has four production lines at a new factory in Lancashire making salads for 17 customers, including the Co-op, Spirit Group and Nando’s. Investment in automation for volume and variety has won customers and helped to grow sales 94% a year, from an annualised £1.1m in 2001 to £7.7m in 2004.
