Camgrain is the UK’s largest farmer-owned cooperative, established in 1983. The compamy’s overriding ambition is to be ‘well-managed, well-informed and well connected’.
Currently, it is the UK’s only farmer-owned network of coordinated advanced processing centre (APC) stores. To meet the needs of this nationwide success, a new breed of cooperative grain store was required. T H WHITE Projects assisted in meeting this requirement with the development, planning and construction of Camgrain’s flagship APC at Balsham, along with the other APCs at Linton, Kettering and Stratford.
Now fully operational, and specialising in food grade wheat, the Balsham APC can provide even more added value to the supply chain, future-proofing the company against increasing grain supply demands.
Key Advantages of APC Network
Potential to professionally supply to the UK food industry with the markets driven increasingly by food hygiene requirements
Allow UK farmers to be in control of the supply chain, rather than through large international agri-businesses
Potential to control logistics and recover efficiencies to farmer members as well as providing better service to the UK food industry
Make the UK food industry more competitive within Europe, increase exports and reduce imports, open markets to guarantee English wheat supply
