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.

We take pride in doing what we do.

We produce seed ourselves here in the UK, which ensures quality and vigour. We avoid imported seed where possible.

We provide a full programme of bulletins and advice throughout the growing season to help you get the best out of the crop.

We can provide a market for any crop you grow with us. Contracts for production are available for all crops.

Within the crops that we specialise in, our stable of varieties are unrivalled. Whether it is Mammoth Millet, Siverka Soya Beans, Amarillo Winter Triticale, Logo Spring Triticale, or Dieta White Lupins, they are each the pre-eminent variety in their market.

Our understanding of Lupin agronomy and utilisation is unrivalled in the UK.

We are the UK's largest supplier, with 80% of all UK Lupin crops being sown with Soya UK seed.

Effective disease control is essential for the production of good quality Lupin seed. Our Lupin seed is produced using strict in-field protocols in conjunction with specialist seed dressings, which has given Soya UK an international reputation for the quality of our Lupin seed.

We only use UK manufactured inoculants, which are sterile and polymerised.

We are the only company in the UK able to offer pre-inoculated Soya and Lupin seed.
