Feeding the world is a huge responsibility. It drives us to improve and evolve.
The world is growing at an unprecedented rate. And as population climbs, food demand will surge. It’s estimated that global food production will need to
double in the next 30 years just to keep up.
With operations in grains and oilseeds in Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, New Zealand, UK and Ukraine, GrainCorp is an accomplished and diverse business partner operating at scale in a vital industry. And our customers are central members of an international taskforce stepping up to meet that challenge.
They’re the farmers who produce the raw ingredients that start the supply chain. The bakers, chefs and food retailers who deliver nutrition, every day. Global companies who make the treats we love and the brewers and distillers who craft the perfect beverage.
Feeding the world is a huge responsibility – and partnering with our customers to meet this challenge is what drives us to improve and evolve.
You'll find our products in award-winning beer, baby formula, treats and even biofuel.
Working in partnership with global, regional and craft brewers, distilleries and food manufacturers, our malted base products are integral to the beverages and foods you love. From joint research and development in our labs to quality assurance and traceability of supply, we help our partners create award-winning beer and whisky, and delicious treats.
From Oregon to Saskatchewan and Kyiv to Coonamble, we are a key partner for growers, local communities and end-use customers. By storing, transporting and trading grain, we provide an indispensable link between local growers and national and international markets. With an emphasis on quality and accountability, we help generate confidence in the entire grains supply chain.
Pies to pastries, infant formula to animal feed: Kitchen-grade oil is a flexible, important ingredient across a spectrum of end uses. We collect, crush and process canola oil for use in cooking, food products, animal feed and as an essential oil in baby formula. We assure the quality and specification of our oils, while also collecting and upcycling waste cooking oil to biodiesel for use in transport.
Our strategy, vision and values embody who we are and where we’re going.
