Jobs created in QV Food move

QV Food's acquisition of the packing arm of Perthshire potato firm Taypack (Grower, 11 June) will create more than 100 jobs, Taypack has announced.

Taypack chief executive George Taylor said: "Thanks to QV Foods we will now have the opportunity to increase our grower network and acreage and assist our farmers by offering outlets for their entire crop, which is one of the many advantages of being involved with a company that has such a well-established portfolio and wide diversity of accounts."

He added: "This is a great fit between two companies that have a shared ethos and common aims. It is good news for our loyal members of staff, our growers and the future of Taypack and we look forward to our continued association with such a progressive company."
