Australia’s Top 10 biggest grain-use sites revealed

Article by Liz Wells of Grain Central revealing the top 10 users of grain in Australia

FOUR new or expanded feed mills hold the midfield in the list of Australia’s 10 largest grain-use sites behind the Manildra Group’s two biggest facilities, and ahead of two malt houses followed by two mills in the Greater Sydney region.

The list, developed independently by Grain Central, points to the might of Manildra as a processor of grain for industrial purposes and human use.

It also shows that two evenly-matched malt houses are doing the heavy lifting when it comes to Australian malt exports, and that George Weston Food’s Enfield mill is the survivor in Australia’s metropolises.

In market terms, it shows how the big inland players from the Darling Downs of southern Queensland to Geelong in Victoria are spread at intervals of 200-400 kilometres.

While the Australian grain industry relies on export and domestic buyers of all sizes, the domestic heavyweights, along with export parity in non-drought years, play a key role in setting the market.
