Who we are and what we do

Agrifac UK Ltd are the sole UK importer for all Agrifac sprayers, Holmer Exxact beet equipment and Zunhammer slurry/digestate handling equipment. We know there is sufficient capacity to produce enough food to feed everyone worldwide adequately, despite the fact that the world population is predicted to increase to 9 billion by 2050. Instead of cultivating more and more land, we should be able to increase food productivity on existing farmland while at the same time lowering our footprint. We want to contribute to the higher food need in a sustainable, ‘Brilliant Simple’ way, and believe that our machines are the first step into reaching that goal.
