Red Eagle are proud to be the Sole Agency for the Thanet Earth Greenhouse complex and one of the labour supplies in their pack house facility.
Delicious salad crops, grown in Kent. Today’s technology meets traditional horticultural expertise at Thanet Earth. The site is home to six vast greenhouses. Inside them are grown tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers; the crops are destined for the shelves of some of Britain’s biggest retailers.
Each greenhouse is a power station too, generating electricity for the National Grid. The plants are kept warm by making use of the waste heat from the cutting edge Combined Heat & Power technology which also provides the extra CO2 the plants need to grow to their potential. This means that Thanet Earth produce doesn’t just taste delicious; it has a very low carbon footprint too. So to the consumer, you get delicious crops, grown and packed in Kent, from a grower with an excellent environmental record.
The site already has approximately 700 people working on site on any one day and the factory and greenhouses are busy all year round supplying British supermarkets. There’s a mixture of skilled and unskilled roles at Thanet Earth.
