Posted on Friday 10th August, 2018 by

AC Goatham & Son’s Commercial Director, Carol Ford, will share a growth story with a difference as the headline business speaker at Kent B2B Medway.

Launched 71 years ago as an agricultural contractor, AC Goatham & Son is an award-winning family business based in Hoo. The company now supplies over 250 million apples and pears each year to the UK’s top supermarkets, including Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Lidl and Iceland. Carol will use her 20 plus years of experience in the industry to share strategy and business insight with Kent B2B delegates.

Medway’s biggest B2B event will take place in The Historic Dockyard Chatham’s iconic No.3 Slip building on Thursday, 20 September 2018. The Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce event will see business people from across Kent and Medway come together as exhibitors and delegates.

Carol Ford explains what to expect from her key-note talk: “AC Goatham & Son is one of Medway’s greatest business success stories and I look forward to sharing how our multi award-winning team has gone from strength to strength at Kent B2B Medway.”

AC Goatham & Son is a home-grown, Medway success story. The business has got to where it is today by adapting to new technological developments while still maintaining their heritage, core values and commitment to the highest quality produce.
