Agrico UK Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Agrico Holland, a Dutch farmer cooperative of some 800 members producing in excess of 360,000 tonnes of seed potatoes per year. Agrico is a global company with offices in the UK, Sweden, Poland, Canada, Italy and France, and has extensive agency networks across the world.

As Europe's leading potato breeder, Agrico set up agency agreements in the mid 1970's to represent its extensive programme in the UK market.

Agrico products proved to be very popular, and as a result Agrico UK was established in 1986 to facilitate the increasing import of Dutch seed potatoes.

With the head office originally based at Ely in Cambridgeshire, in 1998 Agrico UK moved to its present day facilities at Castleton of Eassie in Scotland, which they purchased from seed company 'Nickerson'.

With the continuing success in the UK, and recognition of the ever changing global market requirements, this has led to a natural commitment to UK seed production.
