Business Hub – Cockerills Potatoes

Welcome to the Business Hub, Cockerills Potatoes!

R S Cockerill are still a family business who have operated in and around York since the mid-1930s. We continue to grow by supplying fresh, quality packed potatoes to the discount retailers, food service, and ready meal manufacturing industries. As well as this, we supply the major crisp manufacturers with processing potatoes, helping to make some of the nation’s most recognisable snacks.

This is an exciting time for our business, having recently made a major capital investment in refurbishing our packing facility at Dunnington. It now employs some of the latest developments in pre-packing automation, which has provided our staff with the opportunity to develop new skills and is already making significant improvements in our production efficiency. This investment will enable us to increase volumes and look at diversifying into new areas of fresh produce supply.

We’re proud of what we do and working with York City Knights we want to raise the profile of our business to create new opportunities as a potential employer, to support the local community, develop new suppliers, and gain new customers. Though we have grown to be a business that operates nationally, we still value local.
