Exporters have booked over 5.8 million tonnes of shipping capacity with Viterra for the upcoming season, giving growers confidence with multiple buyers committed to buying their 2024/25 grain.

Viterra opened bookings for short term shipping capacity during May, where exporters locked in another 760,000 tonnes of shipping capacity in addition to the 5.1 million tonnes of long term capacity already secured for the season in previous years.

Viterra General Manager Supply Chain, Derek Robjohns says 15 exporters have booked 2024/25 shipping capacity, showing the strong demand for grain from the Viterra network.

“Our employees work hard to provide a high level of service to buyers, South Australian grain has a strong global reputation for its quality and our supply chain is efficient and effective, which leads buyers to continue to source grain from our network,” Derek says.

“This provides value to our grower customers, who have more choice when selling their grain with access to pricing from multiple buyers sending grain to major markets around the world.

“The high demand is evident at our six ports, which all have shipping booked for harvest and during the peak export period early in the year. This is great news for growers, as we can move their grain to market when international demand for Australian grain is at its highest in the first half of the year.”

Exporters can continue to book remaining shipping capacity in the lead up to the 2024/25 season.

Derek says employees recently loaded the 5 millionth tonne of growers’ 2023/24 season grain for export to continue to meet the current demand for grain from Viterra.

“Our employees have been focused on sending SA grain around the world, having loaded 150 vessels destined to over 30 countries on behalf of 17 exporters,” Derek says.

“This includes 1 million tonnes exported at our Yorke Peninsula ports, 2.3 million at our Adelaide ports, and 1.7 million at our Eyre Peninsula ports, as well as domestic outturns and container exports.

“This is a great effort from all employees across our network who work together to move grain to end users.”

While Viterra continued its busy shipping programme, growers with grain remaining on farm delivered 6000 tonnes to its sites.

Country connect brings the Adelaide Crows to Lameroo and Bute

Viterra recently hosted its first two Country connect events in partnership with the Adelaide Football Club, bringing the Club to the Murray Mallee and Yorke Peninsula.

Over two weekends, past and current Crows AFL and AFLW players headed to regional clubs, Southern Mallee Suns and Bute Football Club, to support match day events and run junior football clinics.

The players and Viterra employees assisted with activities including running water, manning the canteen and providing coaching support. They also helped with running the junior football clinics, where nearly 300 children attended to improve their football skills across the two events.

Viterra is looking forward to the third Country connect event planned for this year on 29 and 30 June on the Eyre Peninsula, where the Eastern Eyre Ranges Football Club will host Viterra and the Crows.
