Premium Crops – a division of Cefetra Ltd

Premium Crops was established in 2001 and is the UK’s leading speciality crop contracting and supply business. The business which is based in Hampshire in the Southern UK, operates a contract farming type model, responding to demand by customers by contracting crops with farmers.

The business is about long-term, often multi-year supply agreements with key European customers. It fulfills customer demand by contracting crop production in the UK and near continent. Customers rely on Premium Crops for sustainable, traceable, long-term and risk managed supply chains. The strength of the business is the experience and knowledge of the key staff, built up over 30 years of specialist crop contracting

Premium Crops fulfills its customers’ requirements by selling farmers their planting seed, supplying a buy-back contract and the technical know-how to best-grow the crop. It then organizes the logistics from farm to end-user. The contracts are “back to back” with no speculative element.

Our origination clients can reap the benefits of our hedging strategies, which utilise the markets to enhance returns.

UK/Irish Distribution rights for POLY4

Cefetra has a long-term agreement for the exclusive European marketing and distribution rights of POLY4 fertilizer.  POLY4 is a multi-nutrient, low-chloride fertilizer certified for organic farming.

POLY4 derives from a naturally occurring mineral polyhalite, that will be mined and produced in the UK by Anglo American Woodsmith Ltd following the acquisition of Sirius Minerals by Anglo American Plc in March 2020.

POLY4 contains four of the six essential macro nutrients that all crops need to grow: potassium, sulphur, magnesium and calcium – all in one product. This fertilizer has several key benefits including crop yield and quality improvement and sustained nutrient delivery profile. POLY4 is a granular product that handles and stores effectively and can be spread with standard equipment up to 36 metre width. The product also enhances soil nutrient legacy and supports crop health. To find out more please visit

In order to feed the planet’s growing population, there is a global need to adopt sustainable farming practices that boost crop yields while using less land and reducing environmental impact.

The use of an organically-certified, natural product such as POLY4 will help to lower the carbon footprint. POLY4, which has no requirement for chemical processing, has the lowest CO2e emissions compared to other fertilizer products. POLY4 also helps to rebalance the soil structure and to improve soil nutrient legacy  while providing essential nutrients required for plant growth.

This agreement is part of Cefetra’s strategy of continuing to build a business with an ethos of sustainability and social responsibility to the People and Planet, with a transparent and traceable Supply Chain building long lasting relationships.

A step closer to a more sustainable agri-food system globally.
