About us

Prime Group

Prime was founded in 1999 as an independent supplier of Molasses. After an organisational restructure 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 feed produce to both farm and manufacturers.
