Ellacotts are delighted to be appointed statutory auditors for Camgrain, one of the UK’s largest farmer-owned storage co-operatives, established in 1983.

Camgrain is a farmer-owned central storage co-operative. Their APC (Advanced Processing Centre) sites collect grain from farmer members, whilst also being adjacent to consumers, and offer guaranteed JIT (Just in Time) delivery 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Farmer commitment, farmer control, careful planning and customer care drive the organisation that has accessed substantial grant aid for its members, bringing pioneering new developments to farmer-owned storage and food processing for the first time.

John Thame, Agricultural and Property Partner, said:

“Camgrain’s purpose is to add value to their members’ crops and maximise returns through competitive marketing in unique supply chains, prompt harvest movement, expertise in storage and cost-effective drying charges. It is now more important than ever for farmers, in the context of Brexit, to regularly review their cost base and effective use of farm assets, such as farm buildings.”
