New receival report for growers and buyers in Ezigrain
17 October 2017
Viterra is launching a new Cumulative Receival Report to allow grain growers and buyers access to aggregated grade information to assist with their respective marketing decisions.
The report will provide growers and buyers with commodity volumes by aggregated grade groups for wheat and barley within each port zone.
Andrew Hannon, Group Commercial Manager, said Viterra was focused on meeting the needs of growers.
“This report will help make cumulative receival information more visible to growers on a weekly basis, particularly for wheat and barley. Growers will be able to better understand how their ownership fits the profile of these commodities in the Viterra network,” Andrew said.
“They can then use this information as part of the suite of tools available to them in making their marketing decisions.
“The new report is in addition to the warehouse disclosure service that Viterra has been offering growers for many years, where growers can elect to publicly disclose their commodity, tonnes, site and contact information to buyers for grain warehoused in the Viterra network.”
Andrew said Viterra continued to work hard to increase demand for South Australian grain to ensure growers had access to every domestic and export market available.
“This is done in a number of ways including hosting international delegations and ensuring we meet the increasing food safety and quality control requirements of importing countries.
“The Cumulative Receival Report will be another way to encourage buyers to South Australia by giving them access to the aggregated grade volumes received during harvest.”
Andrew said the information would be available to growers and buyers on a “commercial in confidence” basis in a secure area of Ezigrain from 23 October, updated weekly.
“As an export-focused state, we want strong demand from overseas customers and believe this level of information will provide a good balance for all stakeholders.
“Public information will still be available via the Weekly Harvest Report and the Quality Statistics by grade and site that Viterra publishes on its website each harvest.”
