Award-winning British producer goes global

Our network of partners in global markets and sector expertise in food and drink have helped CEO Ross Taylor and the Corkers team build a dynamic, international brand with strong vision and big plans for the future.

This video shows Ross's two businesses, Corkers and Buffaload, together delivering end-to-end production and distribution.


Corkers are an award-winning British producer of potato and vegetable crisps. After a long, family tradition of potato farming dating back to the 1800s, owner Ross Taylor saw an opportunity to diversify in the wake of the recession and founded his new Corkers Crisps business in 2010.

Since we started working together, Corkers have had an incredible period of growth that's seen them double in size year on year. Together, we were able to explore the right mix of funding solutions to create a package bespoke to Corkers. Including Trade Finance, this has allowed them to seize the opportunities presented by international expansion and their annual turnover has grown to £11 million.
