Ardo UK operates from offices in Charing, near Ashford, Kent. The site is a world-class, BRC-accredited packing and cold store facility. Ardo UK’s story begins in the 1970s with the founding of Shearway Foods by the Martin family. The packing of frozen vegetables and frozen fruit continued at their sites in Kent for 30 years under the Shearway brand until Ardo group purchased the company from the family in 1994. With a renewed focus on their core values, Shearway adopted the Ardo name in 2004 and are now one of the leading suppliers in the UK.

The combination of Ardo's production facilities on one hand and the market knowledge and sales & purchase expertise of VLM Foods on the other, creates a dynamic breeding ground for sales in North America and strengthens Ardo's global ambition in the fresh-frozen sector.
In Geer, the purified waste water from the Ardo site is pumped into a 40 hectare wetland reservoir. This reservoir is connected to an irrigation network supplying local growers, who can use a proportion of the water to irrigate their vegetable crops. The majority of the water remains in the wetlands, providing habitat for over 200 species of birds. Ardo is the owner of the wetland area and has changed the land use designation, from agricultural land to nature reserve. The wetland project is collectively managed with the producer organisation Apligeer and the nature organization Natagora.
