Specialist Interim Solutions for a Specialist Market


Acquired in December 2018 by Promethean Investments – a UK based Private Equity company; Produce Investments Ltd (PI) is the parent company to Greenvale AP, The Jersey Royal Company, Rowe Farming, Linwood Crops, Restrain Company and Crop4sight. Group revenues stand at c.£200m per annum.

Eden and Produce Investments have worked in partnership since 2012 across the range of businesses within the group.

Originally Eden were viewed as a permanent search firm working on suitable projects but as the partnership between the two businesses developed, it became clear Eden could support Produce Investments’ interim requirements.

Produce Investments has collaborated with Eden Search & Select on both senior permanent and interim executive recruitment.  Eden has provided PI with individuals of significant stature who have delivered value-adding, short-term, strategic projects for the group.  We would anticipate working with Eden on more searches of these nature as the interim market matures across the sector.

Our approach

Utilising its unique deep sector experience and cultural understanding of the Group, Eden provided specialist interim candidates for immediate operational needs as well as large strategic projects which required high level of complexity and absolute confidentiality.


The results

In the last 4 years, Eden has successfully placed interim professionals within the HR, Sales and Technical functions across the business as well as appointing a specialist interim executive to lead an extensive strategic review of a division. Two of the interim professionals have subsequently accepted permanent positions within the group further demonstrating the strong skills and cultural alignment Eden pride themselves in delivering on every project, permanent or specialist interim solutions.
