AWB has taken the following actions due to the tragic events that occurred in the US overnight.
AWB has in place a senior management team to monitor all human resources and pricing risks issues created by this incident.
All AWB staff stationed or travelling overseas have been contacted and are currently safe. AWB has in place emergency procedures to ensure the well being of all overseas staff.
Due to the unfortunate incidents all grain and financial markets in the world have effectively shut down until further notice.
Accordingly, AWB has withdrawn from the market and will not be trading today as we reassess market conditions. In effect, AWB will not be issuing any pricing in both the domestic and international markets today. This situation will be monitored on a daily basis and AWB will make the appropriate announcements in due course.
