We are now looking for 50 farmers ahead of a early December launch of the Farmdeals app. Fuel will be the first product available so those testers should ideally have intention to buy fuel or heating oils through December and January.
Key differences over other buying groups include:
- It will have no joining or membership fee and will be open and free to all UK farmers
- It will not insist on commitment to use exclusively, members are free to buy from their existing suppliers or even other buying groups
- It will not insist upon price secrecy, in fact actively sharing deals available will be encouraged to try and get everyone even better prices
- It will use digital technology to keep operation costs low
