Ardo UK's story begins in the 1970s with the founding of Shearway Foods by the Martin family. The packing of vegetables continued at their sites in Kent for 30 years under the Shearway brand until the Ardo group purchased the company from the family in 1994. With a renewed focus on their core values, Shearway adopted the Ardo name in 2004 and are now one of the leading suppliers in the industry. Today, the Ardo Group exports to more than 100 countries and has 21 different manufacturing and packing sites across 9 countries.
Ardo is also committed to improving the environment in which we operate, from the people to the products and the places in which we operate. We constantly invest in our business and people responsibly and sustainably. We are determined to continue driving positive change and protecting the future.
