Wynnstay help farmers to feed the UK in a more sustainable way

The Group is confident that macro-economic factors, including world population growth and the need for higher levels of national self-sufficiency, should continue to make the UK a strong and growing food producer. In addition, the UK farming sector benefits from a favourable growing climate.

The fragmented nature of the UK’s agricultural supplies market presents growth opportunities, and the Group has demonstrated its ability to increase its market share organically and through complementary acquisitions. Wynnstay has completed over 50 corporate transactions and expanded its supplied product range to more than 25,000 SKU’s, becoming a preferred route-to-market for many of its suppliers.
