1920: The Age of Entrepreneurship

Realising the requirement for fast moving fresh produce, Arthur pioneered The Lincolnshire Potato Railway, transporting the family spuds straight from the farm to the London markets within 24 hours. After the success of this venture, together with his Son (George), AH Worth was formally incorporated and professionalised as an enterprise.
