Thanks to the unexpected resilience of the UK economy following the Brexit vote, customer confidence is strong and the company aims to take full advantage with new product offerings, says the company.
National TOPSOIL manager Andy Spetch said: "Five per cent growth in turnover is an excellent result. Despite concerns that customers might be affected by the uncertainty caused by the Brexit vote we have experienced sustained strong demand for our products and been sufficiently confident to continue with new product development.
"In June we launched Hort Loam, a premium BS3882:2015 compliant planting topsoil, and this autumn our Sports and Turf product, which is an 80 per cent sand dressing for the sports and home lawn markets, will be launched. We expect both products to have a significant impact on performance in 2016-17."
British Sugar TOPSOIL is working on capital projects to increase storage capacity at its Wissington, Norfolk and Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, sites to ensure the increasing demand for its high quality topsoil products can be met.
