Frontier Agriculture is the UK’s leading crop production and grain marketing business. Formed through a joint initiative between Associated British Foods (ABF) and Cargill inc. in 2005, the company now boasts 46 sites across the UK, including several across Lincolnshire with their head office in Witham St. Hughs. Contributing 20% of the grain market, Frontier trades around 5 million tonnes of grain per year and has an annual turnover in excess of £1.5 billion. Frontier utilises several divisions which provide additional specialist advice to growers, aiming to be the first-choice partner for crop production and crop marketing for UK farmers. They also aspire to be the first-choice employer in UK agriculture, offering several trainee programmes – including Trainee Credit Control Administrator and Trainee Farm Trader. The company has been ranked in the top 30 best large workplaces in the UK every year since they began participating in the Great place to Work Institute Survey in 2012, which compares over 10,000 organisations in more than 50 different countries, thanks to its culture, behaviours, and environment.
