Co Down firm's potato box 'Christmash' tree

By Staff Reporter

Co Down pre-packaged vegetable firm Mash Direct has found a novel way of celebrating the festive season.

The family-run firm has helped light up its Comber farm with a six-metre tall 'Christmash' tree, built out of potato boxes.

The company said the tree is "designed to celebrate the excellent harvest which Mash Direct had this year and build the team's festive spirit as they move into the busy Christmas period".

Just last month Mash Direct was named the UK's top food manufacturing company at a London awards ceremony.

The company defeated rivals including Coca-Cola, Moy Park, Weetabix and Kellogg's to be named Best Food Company in the UK at the Food Manufacture Excellence Awards.
