SBP is a well-established growers’ co-operative. Set up in 1972 by five farmers growing a few hundred tonnes, we now have 78 farmer members and grow up to 13,000 tonnes of vining peas.
All our growers lie within 30 miles of the modern processing, cold storage and packing facilities at Eyemouth. This ensures that we freeze our crops within 150 minutes of harvest to lock in their natural quality and taste. We have historically matched or surpassed the standards of the market leaders with the majority of the vining pea crop attaining an AA grade classification.
At the freezer plant our peas are packed in own-brand packaging for UK customers and transported to their distribution centres, minimising the carbon footprint into the supermarket.
