New grain group optimistic about future
A newly formed grain industry body that’ll take the lead on trade and market access has appointed Jonathan Wilson as its Chief Executive.
Grains Australia Limited is an initiative of the GRDC, Grain Growers, Grain Producers Australia, and Grain Trade Australia.
Mr Wilson has served on several industry board, including with Wheat Classification Council and the Grain Exporters Association.
The inaugural Chief Executive told rural editor Eddie Summerfield Grains Australia Limited will have a critical role in growing the value of grain.
“We’re going to help coordinate the industry in terms of the way that we do some of these functions, at the minute with different commodities they are handled a little bit differently, and we want to standardise that,” Mr Wilson said.
