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
  • Continued dry in Northern NSW and Queensland continues to push domestic values higher and the drawing arc widens to southern NSW and Central Queensland as their harvest commences.
  • Hurricane season in the US with the Harvey aftermath already causing major disruptions to the US Gulf export programs.

  • Bureau of Meteorology forecasting below average spring (September – November) rainfall for southwest Australia and roughly equal chances of a wetter or drier spring for the rest of the country. Click on the following link: BOM  
Bearish factors
  • Northern hemisphere corn crops progressing well and anticipated production expected to keep a ceiling on the global feed grain complex values.
  • Big crops get bigger is certainly the case in Russia this year with their wheat harvest now expected to exceed 80mmt, surpassing last years 72.5mmt record.
  • Chickpea enquiry from the Indian sub-continent remains subdued as NCDEX Chana (chickpea) futures face continued selling pressure.
