SCATS Grain is expanding its grain marketing business into the west of England by merging with West Country Grain, it has been announced.

Effective from 1 July, the move will bring significant benefits to members of the western-based co-op, says Tim Pollock, SCATS managing director.

“It will also broaden SCATS Grains market presence, improving its ability to service national grain-processing customers across all areas of the country.”
