The Devon-based firm, which grew, packed and marketed fruit, declined to give details of its decision — simply telling Grower that "we are currently going through the process and that's it".
Signs that the company had fallen on difficult times were evident last year when one of its suppliers, Worcestershire-based Starlight Growers, went into liquidation.
The extent to which growers that are still contracted to the firm will be financially affected by AMS Well-Pict's state of affairs is not yet known.
