Frontier and Camgrain announce a new five-year marketing agreement

Frontier Agriculture and Camgrain have announced a new five year agreement under which Frontier will continue to be the strategic grain marketing partner for Camgrain. 

The news was announced at a ‘Collaboration and Cooperation’ event this week. The event, organised by Camgrain and held at their processing site in Cambridge, highlighted the benefits of collaboration in farming. Key note speakers included Minette Batters, president of the NFU and Frontier’s managing director, Mark Aitchison.

Speaking about the announcement at the opening of the event John Latham, Camgrain chairman said: “This is a positive and long term strategic partnership. We are delighted to extend our relationship which we believe has delivered exceptional value to our members.”

Mark Aitchison added: “We believe this is great news for all involved in this partnership; Camgrain and its farmer members, Frontier and the wider supply chain.  Agriculture is consolidating, we have political uncertainty and currency volatility. Meanwhile there’s increasing consumer awareness and importance attached to provenance and sustainability. It’s absolutely clear to us at Frontier that we are stronger and better prepared to succeed because we are a collaborative business. The partnership we’ve created with Camgrain is built on a number of  key success factors; cultural fit and shared values, complementary skills and expertise, shared assets, and a commitment to creating value  which is investment and solution driven.”

Frontier has been Camgrain’s grain marketing partner since harvest 2015. During this time both businesses have worked together to add value and drive growth across the supply chain for farmer members as well as for Camgrain and Frontier. 

  Camgrain is the leading UK farmer owned storage and processing cooperative with four sites across central and eastern England.
