Emerald Group

Emerald Group Australia Pty Ltd is a leading Australian grain marketing company, offering a range of products to assist growers to maximise returns and manage grain market risks. Emerald offers pool and fixed price marketing alternatives and continues to develop products that meet the needs of its grower customers.

Emerald's philosophy of working directly with growers and grower organisations has seen the development and maintenance of partnerships and alliances with grower groups across Australia.

Emerald, based in Melbourne, has developed joint ventures: Southern Ag Grain with Southern Agventure in southern New South Wales; and SQP Grain with grower group Southern Quality Produce Co-operative in the Western and Wimmera districts of Victoria.

In September 2012, it acquired 100 per cent ownership of the Eyre Peninsula’s leading grain marketer, EP Grain, after buying out farmer-owned company FREE Eyre’s (FEL) 50 per cent stake in the joint venture.

Its acquisition of the Australian Bulk Alliance (ABA) silo network in 2012 and its direct leasing of grain trains is helping to ensure that Emerald’s supply chain operations are integrated into the local accumulation business and are closely aligned to grower needs.

Emerald holds accreditation as a bulk wheat exporter through Wheat Exports Australia, bulk barley exporter from South Australia through ESCOSA and holds an Australian Financial Services License.
