Norvite's Royal Warrant Assurance Schemes

Norvite was founded in 1973 by Alistair Pirie, Roy Matheson and Gilbert Reid who left Spencers Feeds when it was taken over by Unilever. Over the next 22 years, Norvite built a substantial business supplying supplements and protein concentrates direct to farms throughout Scotland and the Scottish Isles. The success of the business was based on excellent quality products and first class customer service.

In 1995, with no natural succession plan in place the directors sold the company to SCA Nutrition, one of the major suppliers to Norvite of baby pig diets. Shortly afterwards, SCA - along with Nutec, Norvite and other subsidiary businesses - was itself acquired by multinational Provimi. Norvite became a private, locally-owned business once more in 2005.

Since 1998, faced with a diminishing Scottish livestock population and in order to drive growth, the business has diversified into complete blended feeds, mobile milling and most recently retailing to the leisure feed market whilst maintaining a strong market share in on-farm feed supplements – which is still very much Norvite’s core business.
