Door open days

22 September 2019 (tours from 9am)

North Lanarkshire

A family business founded in 1948, Albert Bartlett invested £30 in an old water boiler and cast iron bath in order that he might set up a small beetroot boiling operation in Coatbridge.  Albert Bartlett is now the UK's leading grower and packer of potatoes.  In November 2003 they moved from their Watt Street home to a new state-of-the-art facility on Stirling Road.  The site packs over 4,000 tonnes of potatoes a week and has been accredited with various environmental awards.
