W&R Bar­nett is the hold­ing com­pany of a di­ver­si­fied group of in­ter­na­tional com­mod­ity trad­ing, stor­age, agribusi­ness and in­dus­trial com­pa­nies. It is a global trader of mo­lasses and re­lated liq­uid commoditie­s, and the lead­ing trader of grain and non­grain an­i­mal feed commoditie­s in Ire­land. The com­pany is also a prom­i­nent in­de­pen­dent sup­plier of bulk liq­uid stor­age fa­cil­i­ties to the UK food, feed, in­dus­trial and en­ergy sec­tors with over 400,000 cu­bic me­ters of stor­age as­sets lo­cated on the Mersey, Hum­ber, Thames and Avon­mouth.

Through its sub­sidiary, John Thomp­son & Sons, the com­pany is the largest man­u­fac­turer of an­i­mal feed in North­ern Ire­land. The com­pany en­tered the cor­ru­gated pack­ag­ing mar­ket in 2015 with the ac­qui­si­tion of Log­son Hold­ings Lim­ited and this ac­tiv­ity now ac­counts for a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of its turnover, prof­itabil­ity and em­ploy­ees. Turnover and prof­its rose in the year re­flect­ing the first full year in­cor­po­rat­ing Log­son Hold­ings Ltd, the ac­qui­si­tion of The Boxshop Lim­ited and one-off in­vest­ment gains. The firm in­vest heav­ily in build­ings, plant and IT dur­ing the year.
