Who we are
AF is on your side. We champion UK farmers and offer them the best value procurement as well as the most expert and independent advice to help them save time and money.
World-leading market insight
AF have a blend of industry and product specialists who 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.
Supply chain knowledge
AF extends beyond simply a price driven offering. Our commitment to delivering value and helping improve business performance is highlighted by our ability to optimise operations to maximise speed and efficiency within the supply chain. Working collaboratively with manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and consumers, we help increase efficiency and reduce costs, benefitting all parties.
Understanding our Members’ needs is at the core of AF. Using these individual requirements allows us to work closely with our key suppliers to help Members purchase strategically including forward fixing as well as commitment pools. Additionally, we can help Members manage cash flow by offering deferred payment.
Hassle-free account management
AF enables you to concentrate on what you do best, farming. Our highly-skilled administrative team check and process monthly invoices into a single consolidated account, allowing you to view exactly what you’ve purchased. We can improve efficiencies further through our monthly eBilling which replaces paper invoices with a single electronic document.
