Camgrain's strong relationship with Sainsbury's continues to progress, supported by the work of our growers who are members of the Sainsbury's Wheat Development Group. Following recent very positive coverage in the farming and food industry press, Sainsbury's have included the "Camgrain British Flour" story as a key element of their stands at Agricultural shows throughout the UK , as far afield as Balmoral (Northern Ireland), The Royal Highland Show(Edinburgh), The Great Yorkshire Show (Harrogate) and The Royal Welsh show (South Wales).
Camgrain farmers, directors and staff will be attending on several days supporting Sainsbury's at these shows. You will see from the attached photographs that the Sainsbury's stand carries a strong message acknowledging the strength of the Camgrain supply especially following a difficult harvest in 2012. Farmer & Camgrain Director, John Jefferies has been attending the Balmoral show in Northern Ireland this week.
Camgrain will also be attending Cereals 2013 12th -13th June on stand 8-H-842 and The Royal Norfolk Show on 26th & 27th June 2013 so come and hear the latest news.
Camgrain members are enjoying tangible benefits from the increased demand for quality distilling barley says David Dowty, Malting Barley Director for Openfield, as the second of three Camgrain cargos was loaded at Mistley Quay ready for the long journey to the Western Isles of Scotland.
1650 tonnes of dried and dressed low nitrogen Concerto spring barley was despatched from Linton APC, destined for Islay. "By contracting long-term supply agreements with trusted world players, Openfield will continue to maximise the value added to spring barley grown and stored by Camgrain members at Linton" added David.
Farmers Co-operative Camgrain are pleased to announce the launch of an new research project funded by a prestigious grant awarded by Sainsbury's Research & Development Grant scheme for innovative supply chain ideas Camgrain Farmers taking part in the Sainsbury's Wheat Development group will work with ADAS, The UK's leading independent provider of environmental consultancy services.

Accepting an invitation from Truck supplier Marshall DAF to visit the recently held Commercial Vehicle show proved worthwhile for Camgrain. Technical Manager and CPC holder Alan King took the opportunity to visit the RHA stand for a discussion and was persuaded to enter the competition to win £500 of free fuel provided by The Fuel Card Company – and received a call on the way home to say Camgrain were the winner!
Camgrain have been a member of the RHA for many years and have been using the Fuel card scheme since 2008. Richard Feast, Sales manager of Marshall DAF supplied Camgrain with their first ever truck in 2004 and the strong relationship remains.
The presentation of the £500 free fuel prize was made by Martin Dean of the RHA and Mike Gillson of the Fuel Card Company during a visit to Camgrain's Cambridge APC and coincided with the latest delivery of a new DAF 44 tonne tractor unit by Marshall DAF.
