In 2001, Grainfarmers established a joint venture – The Organic Arable Marketing Group (OAMG) – which now markets over 25% of the UK’s organic combinable crop.
Grainfarmers provides marketing and administration expertise for OAMG’s farmer members. At the same time, through links with Elm Farm Research Centre, OAMG Members can also receive on-farm technical support and advice.
Elm Farm Research Centre are partners in the Organic Arable Marketing Group. They provide members with the latest reseach they are undertaking into the organic cereal sector through the Group’s newsletter and farmer meetings.
Competitive marketing fees and flexible payment options are offered and the package provides continuity of supply of over 12,000 tonnes of UK produced organic, and in conversion, cereals and pulse grains to end-user customers every year.
OAMG has negotiated a number of added-value contracts for specific grades of milling wheat under tripartite agreements with flour millers and the retail multiples.
