Our buyers at AF are industry and product experts. Between the teams they have a wealth of knowledge to help our members buy the right product, at the right price, at the right time.

To ensure that we can focus on your needs, we have individual business units with qualified buyers. Our Crop Production team are FACTS and BASIS qualified, whilst our Livestock team hold SQP and CIPS qualifications.

The buying team also have unique access to market information and commodity pricing, allowing us to leverage advantage for our members.

Combining industry knowledge with market intelligence we are able to ensure our members are as informed as possible to help them make the best decisions possible for their business. We update our members regularly on market changes for volatile markets such as fuel and fertiliser as well as keeping you up to date with changes and trends across a variety of industries: from telecoms and energy to building supplies.

Having this market insight allows our buying team to keep members informed of when and how much to purchase, to make the best saving for their businesses.

Planned Purchasing

We work with you to understand your individual business needs. Using these individual requirements allows us to work closely with our key suppliers to use market insight to help members purchase strategically. We can utilise ‘forward fixing’, meaning you can guarantee the best price over a period of time, in volatile markets such as fuel.

Not only that, we can help members manage cash flow by offering deferred payment.
