Prime Group

Prime was founded in 1999 as an independent supplier of Molasses.

After an organisational restructuring in 2005, Prime became part of the Cremer Group. As a major global commodity trader, Cremer Group provides support and backing and continues to play a significant part in Prime’s continuing success.

In 2007 Prime entered the organic supply market after initial success in supplying organic molasses to UK users. Early in 2009 Prime Organic Ltd was established and now offers a range of organic raw materials direct to the animal feed trade. Cane Molasses, Organic Molasses, Organic Palm Kernel and Organic Palm Oil are just a few of the high-quality products Prime can provide.  With distribution points throughout the UK, Prime are able to deliver quality products door to door, with the focus on quality customer service it is Prime’s intention to always meet their customer’s requirements.
