A Visit to Puffin Produce and Dyfed AGM

By kind invitation of Puffin Produce we will be having a tour of their production facility and hear their fascinating story of growth to a business that now employs 150 staff.

As a 100% grower owned business, Puffin Produce have enjoyed a long and rich history going from success to success. Their delicious ethically sourced produce, grown, picked and packed in Wales, has been supplied to their loyal Welsh customers as far back as the 1970’s. 

In 1980, 34 growers joined together to form the Pembrokeshire Potato Marketing Group, but since these humble beginnings, the business now employs 150 staff at their Withybush headquarters. 400,000 tons of Welsh potatoes are processed and packed every year!

 Puffin Produce look to innovate and grow in a sustainable manner to ensure the longevity of their business and environment in the future. Being part of the ‘Courtauld 2020’ agreement they use the ‘Cool Farm Tool’ on their farms and source 95% of their energy from renewable sources. Puffin Produce also work to reduce waste on site throughout their production processes.

Members will meet at The Pembrokeshire Show Pavilion on the County Showground before we enjoy a guided tour around the Puffin Produce processing factory. We will hear from Managing Director Huw Thomas about how the business has grown from its start as a marketing group in 1980 under the name of ‘Atlantic Puffin’. Huw will share the challenges they have faced over the years and the rapid growth experienced by a company that now supplies Welsh potatoes and vegetables to its many satisfied customers, as well as always looking for future business opportunities in a rapidly changing world.

A buffet lunch will be served at the Pembrokeshire Show Pavilion following the AGM.
