Viterra is a large contributor to communities where we operate.

We are a major employer, with most of our employees living and working in regional areas. Where possible, we use local contractors and suppliers for our capital and maintenance projects which provide flow-on contributions for local business and economies. As a company we support many initiatives that benefit regional communities.

Silo art

Viterra are proud to support silo art initiatives in the regional communities where we operate. We sponsor silo art projects by providing in-kind support with our silos as canvases.

In 2017 our Coonalpyn silos were painted by Guido van Helten as part of the ‘Creating Coonalpyn’ project. Also in 2017 the Viterra silos at Kimba were painted by Cam Scale as part of the ‘Igniting Kimba Arts Program’.

Early 2018 saw our Tumby Bay silos painted by Martin Ron as part of the ‘Colour Tumby Bay Street Art Festival’. In 2018 Wirrabara silos were painted by Smug proposed by the Wirrabara Community Tourism & Development Group and organised by the District Council of Mt Remarkable.

In 2019 work was completed on our Waikerie silos painted by two artists Jimmy DVate and Garry Duncan as part of a larger development plan for the town.

Viterra is working with other regional communities on silo art projects. If you wish to nominate your local site for future artwork, we encourage you to contact us for a full outline of the process involved.

Sponsorship and donation requests

Viterra is committed to supporting the regional communities in which we operate, through sponsorship and support for a range of grower groups, local community organisations and charities.

Our involvement in the grower community includes supporting the South Australian No-Till Farming Association (SANTFA), the Yorke Peninsula Alkaline Soils Group, Eyre Peninsula Agricultural Research Foundation (EPARF), the MacKillop Farm Management Group, and the HART Field Day.

Viterra supports employee involvement in emergency service organisations by providing paid leave for employees who volunteer and participate in emergency situations and activities.
