Grain Brokers Australia (GBA) is a leading independent grain brokering business, established in West Australia in 2007. Since then, GBA has assisted growers to maximise revenue from the sale of their grain. The success of the business in the west led Jeff Winspear (principal of GBA) to identify an opportunity to service growers nationally by expanding into eastern Australia in 2017.

In the last six months GBA has opened offices in NSW (Albury), Victoria (Melbourne), and South Australia (Adelaide).

“Having a national footprint gives our business deeper insight into potential opportunities for all our members across the country. Balancing out the variables between conditions in the west and the east provides certainty to our buyers which in turn opens up a range of marketing opportunities for our grower members,”Mr Winspear siad.

Broadacre move

ADELAIDE-based water trader and agribusiness, Duxton Group, is looking to be a serious grain sector landholder supported by a planned $22 million public float on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

Duxton Broadacre Farms is expected to float next year, based on farm assets in the NSW Central West at Forbes and West Wyalong where it has three properties on its books. The company’s Duxton Water is already listed on the ASX following a float in September last year. Duxton Group is majority owned by directors, Ed Peter and Stephen Duerden, and manages an investment portfolio reportedly worth about $1 billion.
