Frontier join forces with GFP seeds
The Directors of Frontier Agriculture Ltd and GFP Ltd have reached agreement to form a JV operation to process and market seed in the East Midlands.
Under the arrangement GFP will continue to operate as a separate independent entity with Frontier taking a significant stake in the business.
The collaboration will enable GFP to gain access to Frontier's extensive variety portfolio, technical and trials support and financial resources.
While Frontier will gain access to GFP's modern processing capacity and mobile seed cleaning business.
GFP will continue to be run by the existing Directors Matt Phillips and Mike Gibson. Bill Faulding will be leaving the Company to pursue his other business interests.
The new structure comes into operation with immediate effect.
'THE GOING’S GOOD AT MARKET RASEN'
GFP Agriculture Ltd are proud to supply Lincolnshire’s only racecourse with grass seed. Pip Kirkby, managing director at the racecourse, commented: “At Market Rasen we aim to keep our track in the best possible condition. This helps to ensure the safety of our horses and jockeys during the racing season - whatever the Lincolnshire weather brings. We like to work with local companies that understand the requirements of a racetrack. GFP Agriculture Ltd has provided us with a special mixture of grass seed, tailored for our needs and we're looking forward to another excellent year of racing ahead.
GFP are pleased to sponsor Scotter Junior U14’s Football Team.
Scotter Junior Football Club is a FA charter standard club run by a voluntary committee formed to provide competitive football for children ages 6 to 16 from Scotter and the surrounding area. Our Club and all of its teams are run by FA qualified and CRB checked volunteers who aim to provide a safe and secure environment for children to develop both football and social skills. We feel it is important to show support for a rural team and wish them the best of luck this season.
Where our food comes from?
Mike Gibson has been working with Alex Albone of Pipers Crisps and Children from Havelock Academy, Grimsby. The pair have been trying to increase awareness of where our food comes from by working with groups at our Laceby Farm site. The monthly talks aim to increase awareness of where our food comes from and how commodities are processed from their raw state to the supermarket shelf.
