Q. What is your relationship with Kirkland UK?

A. Kirkland was once our brand name for all the specialist machinery we supplied to UK Fruit Growers. In time sales of the Kirkland products grew, and for Kirkland to become a separate business, became a logical progression. The decision to operate Kirkland as a separate business from Agricare was purely a business decision based on careful analysis and recognised business practice. As both businesses operate within the UK Fruit growing industry there is often communications between us which are really for the mutual benefit of the whole industry. The Kirkland team and the Agricare team have, and will continue to, enjoy good relations both during and outside of business hours.

A. Agricare endeavour to deliver what customers need when they need them. Our vans go out to the local area every day, smaller deliveries further afield would be sent out on next day service by carrier with larger deliveries of palletised products or complete lorry loads being sent out by specialist hauliers. We have a fantastic warehouse/operations team that will process each order as efficiently as possible.
