We’re committed to working cooperatively with farmers to deliver a service that is mutually beneficial.
As your supply chain manager, we provide a secure connection between your business and market users. Through tailored marketing services, expert advice, and our practical and logistical resources, we deliver profitable relationships and a service that you can consistently rely on to enable you to secure the best for your business.
We are actively involved in the grain market and have developed many long-standing relationships, all of which are augmented by our well-established connections.
Through our strong links and connections in the feed, food and fuel industries, we provide farmers with access to a range of end users while ensuring that relationships operate smoothly and profitably. We work with all the major animal feed compounders across the UK as well as millers, often not only supplying but also buying back offtake products.
Our sister companies across Europe give us direct access into major export homes and through our connections we work with the largest exporter of malting barley in the UK.
We have a wealth of expertise, from our skilled traders at head office to our experienced farm buyers at our regional offices, and are uniquely placed to provide growers with financially strong partnerships.
In 2017 we started supplying seed on a national scale through partnerships with some of the UK’s most respected seed breeders, meaning we now offer an extensive range of cereals, pulses and oilseeds.
As part of this service, we offer buy backs on milling wheats enabling growers to lock into a premium at a significantly better rate than currently offered with a flexible movement period.
We are aware of the challenges that farmers face in today’s volatile market, and recognise that by working together we can help you overcome those challenges.
Through an extensive range of services, including pricing and commodity exchange updates, we help farmers in producing and selling their high quality product while minimising risk.
