Scottish broccoli crisps manufacturer set for supermarket Aisles thanks to HSBC UK funding

20/06/2024

A Scottish broccoli crisps manufacturer is set for significant growth as it enters multiple major supermarket chains and is poised to enter more of the “Big Six” later in the year, having secured £510,000 funding from HSBC UK.

Growers Garden, based in Cupar, produces flavoured broccoli crisps from locally-sourced ‘wonky’ vegetables that would otherwise go to waste.

The funding from HSBC UK will be used to increase the storage capacity three-fold, allowing the facility to accommodate the half-a-million units of stock necessary to supply its new supermarket customers. Additionally, the existing facilities in Cupar will undergo modifications to streamline the process of directly supplying products to the retail giants. 

Growers Garden is a collective of 16 farming families in the east of Scotland united by a passion for farm sustainability and responsibly. Working together they grow the ingredients used in the crisps whilst advocating for healthy and low waste eating.

Martin Peel, Managing Director at Growers Garden, said: “We’ve made the ambitious and exciting step to getting our products in supermarkets across the UK, thanks to HSBC UK’s support and clear passion for Scottish agriculture. We’re very excited to be working towards significant growth as a business focused on reducing food waste and encouraging healthy eating through locally sourced ingredients.”

Coenraad Horn, Relationship Manager at HSBC UK, said: “The Scottish agricultural industry is a core focus for HSBC UK and we’re passionate about nurturing growth within the sector by working with innovative companies like Growers Garden. We look forward to seeing the company’s next move as it enters a vast new retail space.”
