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
  • Drought conditions in parts of the US and Canada decrease winter and spring cereal production year on year.
  • Below average rainfall across all of Australia’s grain growing regions set to almost halve the domestic wheat production year on year.

  • Latest long range forecast from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology suggests the dry bias will continue into the spring. Click on the following link: BOM  
Bearish factors
  • Despite the winter/spring crop issues in the northern hemisphere global wheat ending stocks and the stocks-to-use ratio still bearish.
  • Harvest across the Black Sea region now in full swing with Russian yields running 8% ahead of last year – now expect year on year record wheat production.  
  • Sub-continent interest in chickpeas very subdued at the moment with another huge Australian harvest fast approaching.
