Growers will be able to see how farmer-owned central storage co-operative Camgrain operates and maintains its sites at a series of three open days this month.

Visitors will be able to hear from the company’s partners, directors and guest speakers about market prospects and the firm’s business strategy as the UK prepares to embark on negotiations that will see the country leave the European Union.

“We are very pleased to have secured excellent guest speakers to stimulate topical discussion on the future of farming,” says Camgrain chairman John Latham, who firmly believess that UK agriculture faces opportunities as well as challenges from Brexit.

In total, Camgrain has 470,000 tonnes of storage capacity in East Anglia and the south Midlands. The company has four advanced processing centres (APCs) – two near Cambridge, one in Northamptonshire and one at Stratford-upon-Avon.

Together, the four facilities have a combined peak daily intake capacity of 30,000 tonnes utilising 250 lorries per day. Each location has a different focus although they work together to add value to farmers’ crops by targeting specific markets.

The Cambridge APC has BRC grad A certification for food grade grain cleaning at storage. Its nearby neighbour at Linton is designed to maximise segregation and micro management of malting barley and niche crops.

The APC in Northamptonshire is strategically placed at the centre of the East Midlands food processing industry. Meanwhile, the Stratford APC serves the organic sector. It is co-located with an RCMA oilseed rape crush facility.

Open day speakers include HSBC head of Agrifoods Allan Wilkinson, agricultural economist Sean Rickard, Frontier managing director Mark Aitchison, Frontier grain director Simon Christensen, and Kevin Ball of RCMA oil crushers. Not all speakers will attend each open day.
