Bord na Móna is pleased to confirm the acquisition of one of the UK’s most successful horticulture companies, White Moss Horticulture Limited (WMH).
WMH is one of the largest Green Waste composting companies in the UK, manufacturing composts and other growing media, supplying large national retail outlets, landscapers, amenity companies and hobby gardeners with sustainable products.
Bord na Móna CEO Mike Quinn said “this acquisition helps support the sustainability of our retail horticulture business. Vitally, it will underpin Irish jobs and continued production across the group and within the broader Horticulture business.
Bringing White Moss on board provides Bord na Móna Horticulture with the opportunity to strengthen its position in the UK retail market. It also helps sustain the business into the future by delivering security of non-peat feedstock supply and a competitive supply chain model that drives value in operations and logistics.”
