Originally Huntapac supplied the local Fruit & Veg markets in Lancashire and Yorkshire however in 1967 a new pack house was built to cope with the increasing demand for high quality produce.
In more recent years it has more than doubled in size and become a 24-hour, 364-day-a-year operation, and one of the largest and most successful root producers in the UK with roughly 500 staff. Huntapac was founded by William Hunter in 1942 before being passed down to William Hunter, or as many people knew him, Bill Hunter. William Hunter was the managing director and it was William who, in the 1970's took the business to what it is today with his hard working mentality and commitment. William then become chairman of the company and his two sons Warren Hunter(William Warren Hunter) and Jason Hunter(Jason Charles Hunter) where left to run the business.
Warren Hunter is now the Managing Director of the business and together with his brother Jason Hunter(Director) they have proceeded to expand the business with their hard work and dedication. Sadly William, the son of the original founder was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 72 whilst he was still very much involved with the day-to-day running of Huntapac, in November 2014 William passed away at the age of 73.
