GB Seeds was formed in 2000 as an MBO from the long established seed business of George Burlingham & Sons Ltd. The new company has embraced the changing world of agriculture. We now market seeds for feed into a wide range of markets including wild bird feed, ingredients for pet foods. We also offer commercial seed for farmers and wholesalers. Adding value to a commodity and marketing quality products both at home and abroad.

GB Seeds is committed to maintaining a personal and quality of service which is demanded today. We do this without losing touch of traditional values required between supplier and consumer.

In 2009, the company was acquired by Masstock Arable UK, who have since combined with UAP to form Agrii.

Although we buy and sell in different currencies, GB Seeds are committed to the protection of our fragile environment. We aim to source products and seeds as close to our production facilities as possible. This is becoming increasingly difficult, resulting in the need to source options from outside of the UK. With this in mind we are always in discussion with growers, looking to give them an opportunity to diversify on home soil. We aim to help the future of UK agriculture, whilst sourcing as ethically as possible.

Over the years we have worked to identify varieties which can be grown in the UK. This way we are able to source UK grown products instead of those in Central Europe, Asia or the USA. This has had a significant impact for us and reduced food miles for many of our products. GB Seeds continue to research ways to improve the Life Cycle Analysis of our products.

We have also invested in the ability to offer re-cleaned product to aid our customers getting the best product and the one they are after.
