SAFFRON Walden MP the Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst visited Camgrain in Linton after missing an open evening in June to hear of the firm's future plans.

Sir Alan took this latest opportunity to receive a briefing from the company's chairman, John Latham. It was his third visit to the grain store since its establishment.

Its current growth rate is huge, with a grown capacity of around 160,000 tons and is relied on by many farmers in the area.

Camgrain's plans involve expansion and relocation plans near Great Wilbraham.

The current site is reaching its maximum capacity and with poor access to the site resulting in traffic issues; a larger location would help the current problems and would improve time efficiency, with upgraded labour equipment speeding up processes.

Sir Alan commented on the plans. He said: "The Camgrain concept proved highly beneficial for farmers handling grain and has been expanding over the years since it's opening with positive benefits for many, expansion would provide and enhance further benefits.
