Harbro is proud to have the UK’s largest nutrition department consisting of degree and PhD qualified nutritionists and scientists, ensuring technical support is available when required. Our nutrition department works closely with a number of key universities and research institutes, along with running an in-house research and development programme. This ensures that we are able to bring the latest information to our customers, which can then be used on a practical level.

As part of our commitment to innovation we are a leading partner in a £35 million government funded precision farming epi-centre, which will find new ways to measure and monitor on-farm performance. This leadership means that our customers will be the first to benefit from this new initiative.
