In April 2008 the Denis Brinicombe Group acquired the Scottish based Lachlan Macgregor Feeds business and as a result inherited an own label brand of grass seed. This own label product, formulated by the internationally respected seed house of Barenbrug UK Ltd, was sold to customers in the parts of Scotland covered by the business and this policy has continued since the acquisition.

In April 2008 the Denis Brinicombe Group acquired the Scottish based Lachlan Macgregor Feeds business and as a result inherited an own label brand of grass seed. This own label product, formulated by the internationally respected seed house of Barenbrug UK Ltd, was sold to customers in the parts of Scotland covered by the business and this policy has continued since the acquisition.

The Denis Brinicombe Group has made the decision to extend the grass seed sales area to include the remaining parts of Scotland along with the whole of England and Wales, which has strengthened their link with Barenbrug.

Initially the Group will offer a range of seven grass mixtures under the "Brin SEED" brand.

Commenting on this addition to the Group's range of products, James Brinicombe, Group Director said, "I am excited by this new venture. We have seen the grass seed business fitting in successfully with our well-known animal nutrition products in Scotland and as a result we have decided to roll the grass seed business out to cover the whole of the UK mainland."

"At our main offices in Crediton we have set up a dedicated team to deal with customer enquiries and to give advice on the most  appropriate seed mixture for their individual needs and along with the national sales team we believe we can offer a complete service and information package on these new products in the Group's range."

"Grass seed is not yet associated with the Denis Brinicombe name but by using our national sales team and the dedicated support team we believe that the Brin SEED brand will soon become recognised as the quality product that customers expect from our Group," concluded James.

Barenbrug has formulated the range for the Group in co-operation with the Northen Ireland Plant Breeding Station, Loughall, N. Ireland.

The seed mixtures, produced on a made to order basis, will be dispatched direct to the customer.
