It worked with Edinburgh-based Nevis Design Consultants to create a new logo based on the location of the company's Tofthill Farm on the banks of the Tay. The new website reinforces this, and is intended to be tablet- and smartphone-friendly and integrated with social media.

The firm's commercial director Liam Stewart said "We are excited to have launched our new branding and website, both of which reflect our position as a leading fresh produce grower and will assist us with our ambitious growth strategy."

Stewarts has also installed 16 Vector 1550 trailer refrigeration units, supplied by Carrier Transicold UK, in its distribution fleet.

In October the company passed from chairman Jim Stewart, who co-founded the business 40 years ago with wife Mary, to his brother Will Stewart. Jim Stewart retains a minority equity shareholding and continued executive directorship.
