We’re a customer focused grain and oilseeds merchant
We help farmers monetise their produce and manage risk. We trade in core commodities across cereals, pulses and oilseeds, and we manage logistics to store, handle and haul produce. Combining our local expertise and GrainCorp’s global network, we also import and export to best match our customer’s requirements. Our people are passionate about what they do, helping to provide an essential service in bringing produce from farm to table.
Our online customer portal VISION is the place for farmer customers to access a wide variety of information, including account information and history, and sample results for quality feedback and insights.

Manage Risk and Compliance
We support farmer and processor customers in managing their risk by connecting their produce and requirements to market. We manage supply chain risk through our inhouse high standard of logistics, customer care and quality assurance.
Storage, Handling, Haulage
Working with accredited partners in the storage and handling of produce we ensure the maintenance of supply chain integrity and grain quality. Our experienced logistics team handles all aspects of shipping – land and cross border.
We lead the way working with seed breeders, consumer processors and farmers to develop and supply a broad selection of preferred and up-and-coming cereal, pulse and oilseed varieties. We are acutely aware of the impact and how important it is to supply the right product to match consumer requirements. Backed by our quality assurance, networks and supply chain management, we source organic and non-organic produce locally and abroad.
