About Albert Bartlett

At Albert Bartlett, it is all about potatoes and they won’t accept anything less than wholesome, fresh and delicious potatoes.

At Albert Bartlett, we won’t accept anything less than wholesome, fresh and delicious potatoes. From nurturing potatoes on farms to harvesting, storing and packing them; each and every stage of the potatoes’ journey is as important as the next.

Farming has been in our blood for over 60 years and we’ve worked with some farming families for over three generations.

Here’s some facts about the Albert Bartlett family:

  • We supply over 20% of the UK’s fresh potatoes
  • Our farmers are committed to growing the best potatoes
  • We source the best and tastiest potatoes from over 100 farms in the UK and Jersey
  • Our famous Rooster brand is available in the Netherlands, France, Czech Republic and the USA

To ensure your potatoes reach you as fresh as the day they were harvested, we rely on our dedicated teams covering agronomy, quality assurance, production and delivery. We have four state-of-the-art production sites across the UK which are based in Airdrie, Lincolnshire, Cornwall and Jersey. Here, we continue our commitment to bringing you the best potatoes and take great care when packing.

We started our family tradition of selling good quality produce in 1948 when Albert himself invested £30 in an old water boiler and cast iron bath to set up a beetroot boiling operation in Coatbridge, Scotland.

Nine years later, Albert’s experience and passion in produce allowed him to expand the business. Along with his two sons, Jimmy and Alex, they found a new home to grow their business in Airdrie, Scotland. On that very same Airdrie site, we made history when we became the first factory in Britain to pre-pack carrots in a ‘poly bag’.Carrot Bag

Over the years we’ve built on our experience and are proud to supply potatoes from our grower and production network across England, Ireland, Scotland and Jersey. In 2012 we started operating in France and the USA.
