Pauls Agriculture was founded in Ipswich in the early 19th century, initially to trade in malt and barley for the brewing industry. This expanded into trading of maize and other foods for horses. From the early 1900s, they started to produce food for other animals too.
BOCM Silcock, originally British Oil and Cake Mills Ltd. also started in the 19th century and was one of the earliest crushers of oilseeds to produce vegetable oils for human consumption and the manufacturing of soap. The by-product of this process, the oilseed cake, was a good source of protein for animal feed.
Pauls Agriculture and BOCM Silcock merged in 1992 to form BOCM Pauls.
The company is now branded ForFarmers.
