Vitax buys Organico shares

Vitax has expanded its organic product range by buying shares of Organico Ltd. Organico produces many of the products that growers and allotment owners love, including the Groworganic range and the 6x, 100% natural chicken fertiliser and pellets.

Paul Gooding, MD of Vitax, commented, ?Following the purchase of Slug Gone in 2012 we have been on the lookout for complementary organic products whilst also developing our own.

?It is very rare that an opportunity arises to purchase such an established and well-regarded brand which has such growth potential. The 6x brand is already a market-leader so we have no plans to re-brand it or bring it into one of our existing ranges.?

The manufacturing of Organico products will still occur at Compton Dundon in Somerset, and former owner Roger Cuminsky will remain with the company.
