General Support. Sarah is a talented dogsbody and whether it is in the office, the fry testing kitchen or in the chipping factory, she is happy to help out wherever and whenever required.
Farmer’s son (and General Entertainments Manager!) First-born of the latest Robson generation, Will is Chip factory manager in the making. He divides his time between the core business and organising the chipping line, where potatoes meet technology and become a pre-prepared delight. Chipping is Will’s future.
