Welcome to Glencore Grain
Glencore Grain, a subsidiary of Glencore Xstrata plc, has been operating in Australia for more than 10 years.
Glencore Grain is one of the largest buyers of wheat, barley, oilseeds, pulses, meals and cotton direct from Australian growers, with accumulation offices located across five key growing states; Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Glencore Grain has one of the world’s leading marketing and logistics networks for Australia’s commodities. Our strong relationship with growers allows us to effectively service domestic and international end-use customers.
Glencore Grain offers a range of flexible and simple marketing options to growers, including cash contracts, forward contracts and pools. Our financial strength, together with our global marketing and logistics network, ensures that growers can feel confident marketing with Glencore Grain.
In southern Australia, our wholly owned subsidiary, Viterra, provides the storage and handling network spanning key growing regions. This well established network has been serving customers for more than 50 years.
Australia's wheat harvest will fall by more than 2m tonnes next season thanks to a decrease in yield, officials said, although warning that prospects for canola look most at risk from drought in eastern areas.
The soybean market may be storing up trouble for itself.
Agrimoney.com cautioned investors two weeks ago, as soybean prices were falling, against expecting weakness to continue.
Now, as prices hit multi-month highs, the website is warning investors to avoid believing that high prices will stick around for ever either.
Glencore Grain's harvest edition of Grain Business magazine contains leading agronomic, market and industry information for the benefit of growers. In this edition Glencore Grain's Australian trading manager, Philip Hughes, focuses on global consumption for the coming months in the grain market update. The 2014 SARDI Sowing Guide is a main feature of the harvest edition of the magazine, providing detailed grain data and guidance to assist southern growers when planning sowing programs for next year.
