The AWB Origination business was formed in 2011 when Cargill Australia acquired the trading and origination arm of AWB and GrainFlow storage and handling business. AWB originates grain, oilseeds and pulses on behalf of Cargill Australia. The company has an extensive field origination network with 20 farm marketers located across the Australian grain belt. AWB farm marketers partner with farmers to provide them with access to an extensive range of marketing and risk management tools to help them thrive.
GrainFlow operates a network of 22 storage centres in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. The focus of these operations has been the efficient and cost effective receival, storage and outturn of large quantities of bulk grains and oilseeds.
Cargill Australia has a storage and handling facility joint venture with BFB Pty Ltd at Temora in New South Wales.
International and domestic trading business is now handled by Cargill in Australia and through its network of trading offices around the world.
