The Caithness Group of companies successfully completed a demerger on 30th June 2020. From 1st July 2020, a new company, Caledonia Potatoes Ltd, has been created by former Caithness contributors Alistair Melrose, Mike McDiarmid and Robert Doig.
"We will be ably supported by our Perth office team of Andrew Lamont (Sales), Dr Finlay Dale (Science and support) and Sian Mochan (Accounts and more).
"We will continue to work in the many areas and with several of the varieties that you will recognise as having been associated with Caithness previously. For many of you the change will be seamless, apparent in name only."
Robert said the new company will continue to strive to bring new, modern varieties to the market; varieties selected to meet the challenges of the future and the opportunities of today. "We will continue to strengthen our short chain provenance to your supply of seed and ware potatoes allowing us to offer the highest quality potatoes of all varieties, free and proprietary, to your marketplace. We will continue to seek to create long term associations built on integrity and trust for long term prosperity through partnership."
The other part of The Caithness Group will go forward as Global Crops.
