About us

United Oilseeds was founded over half a century ago and is the only specialist oilseeds merchant in the UK, specialising in the sales of oilseeds to farmers and offering a highly successful marketing service for the farmer. See History for more details.

Being a farmer co-operative, we strive to provide added value to our farmer members' businesses, through a professional approach, from the selling of seed to the marketing of the crop, and in the true spirit of a co-operative business we distribute a profit share each year when the funds are available.

Having 50 years experience and a network of area managers throughout the country, we provide a level of service and expertise which is the envy of the industry. See Our People.

The board, some time ago, set out a policy to increase the reserves of the company to a point whereby, a profit distribution could be made to our trading members as mentioned above. Over the last 12 years a distribution of £4.19m will have been paid back to our members.

The strong balance sheet gives our farmer growers the confidence in our company.

Further details are available in Finance.

It costs just £15 to join us for life membership. See the benefits of membership or call your local United Oilseeds Area Manager for more details.
