When Ian Mosey started the business over 40 years ago it began with a piggery, buying weaners to fatten up for sale. Today the business is a multi-divisional vertically integrated group with its own arable and livestock farming units, a contract pig finishing business and an animal feed manufacturing facility. In addition, the business has its own transport / logistics operation which serves the entire group. The strategy of vertical integration has had multiple benefits. Initially the feed mill provided a secure and reliable supply of feed for the b&b pig business, however building a modern mill with a highly skilled team meant there was demand from external customers who wanted to benefit from the bespoke Ian Mosey diets and all-round expertise.
The business is run by its founder Ian Mosey together with his wife and four of their children, now employing over 130 colleagues in a variety of roles across the group.
Still family owned the business's success has been built on traditional values such as integrity, quality and sustainability. Now the vertically integrated group is the largest independent pig producer in the UK with a large, efficient feed mill. The Group continues to invest for long term success year after year.
We are proud to be agricultural specialists operating as a vertically integrated group, dedicated to maintaining high standards across the board. Our aim is to continually supply our customers with high quality products complemented with excellent service and standards so Ian Mosey continues to be a brand synonymous with trust.
The UK's largest independent pig producer
Each pig produced has not only benefited from high welfare standards but has also received a feed programme which has been continually improved over four decades of production. This provides our b&b pigs with first class nutrition designed to maximise feed conversion, growth rates and their overall health.
