How we began
Soya UK Ltd began in 2000, and have built a reputation for quality, innovation and good service with farmers and growers throughout the UK. Initially, we began with the commercial introduction of new Soya and Lupin varieties that had come available to us from plant breeders in the Ukraine.
Since then we have diversified our activities as new varieties and crops have become available to us from different plant breeders around the world. We now deal in a range of crops including: Soya, White Lupins, Blue Lupins, Yellow Lupins, Mammoth Millet, Spring Triticale and Wholecrop mixtures. Today we are the largest supplier of Soya and Lupin seed in the UK.
In addition to our activities as seed merchants, we are involved in seed production, crop trading and exporting and also farming in our own right. We offer a number of opportunities to UK farmers for the production of high quality feedstuffs for home, as well as providing profitable break crop options to the UK arable farmer.
What can we do for the UK livestock Farmer?
Soya UK can supply seed and agronomic advice enabling livestock farmers to successfully grow their own high-quality feedstuffs. We supply a range of Lupin, vetch and cereal based mixtures along with straight cropping options, suitable for both intensive and lower input systems. Numerous farmers can now attest to the sound economic benefits of these crops as they reduce bought-in feed costs whilst providing a non-GM, fully traceable feed.
What can we do for the UK arable Farmer?
Soya UK can supply the seed, the agronomic advice as well as the market for profitable break cropping options. We offer a range of contracts, access to premium markets and back-up through the growing season. As farmers ourselves, we are acutely aware of the need for profitable break crops, and this is what we aim to provide.
