Frontier’s relationships with many of the largest grain consumers give our growers unrivalled access to a wide range of homes.
A short supply chain ensures growers get the best value possible. We hold a unique position in the UK wheat market as a national business with integrated wheat demand from our parents, alongside strategic partnerships with other milling and feed wheat consumers. Exclusive contracts with ABN feed mills, Allied Mills, Cargill starch plant and the new Vivergo bioethanol plant all help to make Frontier the leading wheat business in the UK.
Vivergo – Humber Gold
Frontier has exclusive rights to supply the Vivergo bioethanol plant, near Hull, which presents a huge marketing opportunity to farmers in the surrounding region. Growers who become members of our Humber Gold Club and commit a minimum of 120 tonnes of wheat, will gain access to a range of benefits:
Up to 17% maximum moisture - club members can take advantage of preferential allowances on this higher moisture specification.
Block loading within 30 miles - Tailor your loading schedule to suit your circumstances by choosing early morning, late night or Saturday collections. You can even block load an entire contract at once.
14-15.5% average moisture contracts - Avoid irritating claims outside the 15% specification by averaging your moisture on all contracts over 300 tonnes. Minimum tonnage 4 loads.
Weights and analysis online and by text - View your load weight and analysis online through our iTrac service, or receive details by text within 30 minutes of tipping.
