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.
2000: The Decade of New Opportunities
Increased the farm land to 4,500 acres and opened our own Fresh Prepared Facility to add further value to the humble spud through convenience and premiumisation. An area which remains a focal point for our foodie team of experts, creating the perfect dish to ever-changing consumer tastes.
