Mr Carney was invited to Lincoln Cathedral as part of the celebrations to mark the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, where he gave a speech that reflected on the enduring legacy of the Magna Carta and its relevance to the UK’s economy today. En route to the city he called in at Branston to find out more about a successful local business and some of the initiatives they’re working on to try and stay ahead in these challenging times.
As well as taking a tour of the potato packing facilities, Mr Carney met with key members of the team and he was able to see firsthand the scale and complexity of a major fresh produce business.
James Truscott, Managing Director, commented:
“We were honoured to welcome Mr Carney to Branston and show him around. Our business has been continually evolving since 1968 and we’re continuing to invest heavily in people and technology to ensure that we provide the quality and innovation our customers need.
Mr Carney seemed interested to find out more about the part our business plays in the produce industry. Hopefully we were able to give him an insight into our passion for excellence and our commitment to long-term sustainability for the UK potato industry.
The visit was a unique and exciting opportunity and we were delighted that he took the time to come along to our site.”
