Welcome to Nidera Australia Pty Ltd, a member of the COFCO International Group.

Nidera Australia, a part of the COFCO International Group, is a globally focused grain origination and trading business based in Toowoomba, Australia.

Through strong partnerships with local farmers we supply sorghum, wheat, barley and chickpeas to South East Asia and the Middle East markets with a particular focus on China, Japan and India.

We specialise in bulk supply of commodities to domestic and international customers and keep our growers informed of factors influencing commodity prices regionally and globally with weekly market reports.

The COFCO International Group brings together the solid history of COFCO, Nidera and COFCO Agri. These organisations have a long-standing market presence and a deep understanding of the world’s largest agricultural importing markets, including China. Add to this, the strong financial backing of the COFCO International Group and the knowledge and experience of our local team, Nidera Australia is now part of a global agri-business with a six-continent supply chain.

We aim to create a vertically-integrated global agricultural supply chain, supported by COFCO’s unique position in China, strengthen worldwide origination, logistics and trading capabilities, and grow our business globally.

We believe that agricultural products, which we need to support our daily life, should be available to every person on this planet, now and in the future. At COFCO International it’s all about ‘Meeting Tomorrow’s Demand’.

Bullish factors
  • Indian chickpea harvest concluded as India entered the fasting month of Ramadan. Crop reportedly better than last year but Indian demand expected to return in July.
  • Dryness in parts of the United States, Canada and Europe pushing futures bourses and global grain values higher .

  • Much of the Australian crop in the ground but lack of follow up moisture raising new crop production concerns and pushing domestic basis higher.  
Bearish factors
  • United States summer crops are in the ground and emerging with relatively few issues at this early stage of the season.
  • The near record pace of Australian exports will face stiff competition from eastern Europe in the second half of the calendar year meaning the Australian carry out will be substantial.  
  • South American summer crops are exceeding early productions estimates increasing availability of both corn and soybeans in the world market place.
