Pulses

ADM Agriculture specialise in supplying human consumption pulse products and have built up a reputation for quality, both domestically and world-wide

ADM Agriculture export many thousands of tonnes of bagged pulses in containers to countries around the world, as well as producing bagged pulse products for a wide range of domestic customers.

Our purpose built production lines involve comprehensive cleaning through highly sophisticated and specialised cleaning equipment, including the most up-to-date colour sorting machines. These machines can differentiate between changes in colour so removal of stained or discoloured products, vegetable or non-vegetable matter, can be carried out. Once product has been cleaned, our automated packing line allows us to pack into a variety of bag sizes to meet customer needs.

Products supplied by ADM Agriculture have a vast range of uses, including canning, packets for supermarkets, fish and chip shop trade, mushy peas, dry roasted bar snacks plus sweet pea paste for confectionery products in the Far East. Our processing lines also incorporate equipment used for decorticating (skinning) and splitting when required.

Human Consumption Beans

These are mainly spring varieties which are exported to Middle Eastern countries as a cheap source of edible protein.

The beans need to be suitable for human consumption with maximum moisture content of 15% and maximum beetle damage of 3% both visible and non visible.

The market for human consumption types is around 600,000 mt per year. Of this total the UK, in a normal year, contributes up to 150,000 mt mainly in bulk shipments.

ADM Agriculture are able to offer access to this market via our many ports. Growing contracts are available.

Feed Beans UK and Export

Total UK bean production tends to range from 400,000 to 650,000 mt per year.

Feed bean demand for domestic and export markets varies from 300,000 to 400,000 mt. ADM Agriculture are active in all markets with facilities for export from many ports.

We are also well placed to supply all the UK major animal compounding businesses, either for incorporation or for speciality feeds.

Human Consumption Peas

This much specialised market requires top quality material grown under contract.

Buyers are under extreme pressure to produce a product which meets today’s very high standards.

ADM Agriculture are able to offer growing contracts for most of the modern day varieties available to growers.

Micronising Markets

Peas, beans and maize are all used in this process, which transforms the raw material to a high energy feed ingredient used in high quality animal feeds.

There is a healthy export trade of this product to countries within the EU and to the Middle East.

ADM Agriculture have a good working relationship with all end buyers within this sector.
