Grain is one of Australia's most valuable agriculture products. Wholesalers play a major role in the distribution of grain from farmers to end markets, both domestically and internationally. Over the five years through 2015-16, industry revenue is forecast to grow by an annualised 6.1% to reach $18.1 billion. Industry revenue is anticipated to rise by 5.5% in 2015-16. This is due to an expected increase in total domestic grain production, combined with a marginal increase in world wheat prices. The projected further depreciation of the Australian dollar should also boost demand, due to the improved relative affordability of Australian grains in export markets.
The industry consists of companies that wholesale wheat or other cereal grains.
