Thank you for your question.
The ownership of a company is a matter of public record. You can ask Companies House for the information about shareholders and directors which will be contained in the last Annual Return of the company concerned.
Go to for further information on this.
There is, however, no way of finding out the day to day business activities of a company, such as whether they import garlic from outwith the EU. There is no publicly available register which would give you that information.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
