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
  • Long range forecasters are suggesting that an El Nino weather pattern will develop for Australia in the second half of the year.

  • Indian chickpea harvest getting underway and reports suggest that crop will be bigger than last year but well below average which may bring Indian importers back to the Australian market before the new crop harvest begins.
  • Some moisture deficit in some parts of the Hard Red Winter (HRW) wheat areas of the US raising some production concerns.  
Bearish factors
  • South American summer crops are in good shape and production estimates are increasing each week as early harvest progresses with very few interruptions.
  • Winter crop exports running along at near record pace but competition from Europe in the second half of the year will make it difficult for final numbers to be any more than 22mmt and 7mmt for wheat and barley respectively.  
  • Northern hemisphere winter crops have emerged from dormancy in good shape and with very few moisture deficit concerns at this early stage of the season.
