The article reports on an investment by H J Heinz at its Westwick factory in England, which will allow the processing of 100,000 tons of potatoes in 2008. The Westwick factory produces about 60,000 tons of frozen potato products for Heinz's Aunt Bessie range, including chips, roast potatoes and mashed potato, according to production manager Ian Rainford. All the potatoes being used in the factory are supplied by the Higgins Group, which has entered into a sole supply contract with Heinz until 2011, says the company's European buyer, Bryan Towell.
