Talking Potatoes With Jack Hamilton From Mash Direct (#34)


Meet Jack Hamilton…


Jack Hamilton is a 6th generational farmer with a twist. After the family farm faced financial difficulties, the Hamilton Family took the potato industry by surprise and founded Mash Direct.

What started as a mash-potato delivery service via van has grown into one of Northern Ireland’s most well-loved companies and one that sells a pack of vegetables every second.

Mash Direct may be a family run business from Comber, but they move and act like a disruptive tech startup, utilise the digital age to talk about and celebrate their favourite thing: good local food.

All this and more in today’s episode. Check it out!
