Mercian Ltd

The largest single supplier of crisping potatoes to the UK’s industry

Mercian’s web-based system allowing growers to manage their business

Making farming simple

Helps to run the most efficient potato farms by working with farmers to identify issues, recommend solutions and streamline operations. Historical data and field apps and years of data to begin the process of digitalisation.

Technology behind LiveTrace

Software-as-a-service function provides a multi-tenancy account platform to integrate third party cloud software into one place.

Geographical spread

Our national supply base begins with early potatoes in Cornwall and Anglesey and moving on to Hereford and Cheshire.

Our maincrop potatoes are from Shropshire, Lincolnshire, East Anglia, Lancashire and Yorkshire.


We are encouraging and supporting farmers to reduce their farm greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, increase their carbon sequestration, farm energy resilience and by doing so also improve their farm businesses for the future. A new partnership with Farm Carbon Toolkit will provide each enterprise a carbon score for each season. Farmers and growers can produce quality food, enhance biodiversity and absorb more carbon than they emit by altering the way their businesses work.
