Viterra hosts local growers at Wallaroo to watch lentil ship loading

On 21 February, we hosted a group of local growers to tour our Wallaroo terminal and watch as we loaded lentils onto the Key West vessel. 

Viterra Central region Operations Manager, Jack Tansley says this is the second ship we have loaded with lentils at Wallaroo since we opened a lentil segregation at the site for the first time in the 2023/24 season.

“We started receiving lentils at Wallaroo in response to grower feedback and increased lentil production on the Yorke Peninsula,” Jack says.

“We received positive feedback from growers on the new segregation, reflected in strong deliveries into the site. Thank you to our grower customers for their support.

“It was great to host growers at the port to show what happens to their grain after it’s delivered to Viterra and explain how we connect them with international consumers and maintain market access by meeting end use requirements.”

After leaving Wallaroo, we finished loading the Viterra vessel at Port Giles before it set sail to Bangladesh with 33,000 tonnes of lentils.

Viterra announce postharvest survey community donation prize winners

Five community groups will benefit from a $1000 donation made by Viterra on behalf of growers and carriers who won the company’s postharvest survey competition.

By providing their feedback in our postharvest survey, growers and carriers had the opportunity to go in the draw to win 1 of 5 donations to a community group of their choice.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • Allan Needs, Lameroo grower nominated the Lameroo Tennis Club
  • Louise Hicks, Frances grower nominated the Border Districts Football Club
  • Keith Mccreight, Coobowie carrier nominated the Royal Flying Doctor Service
  • Edward Hawker, Clare grower nominated the Clare Valley Flying Group
  • Anonymous grower nominated the Yongala Recreation Park

Viterra is a proud supporter of the communities we operate in and is pleased to be able to support local community groups on behalf of our grower and carrier customers.

Viterra General Manager Operations, Gavin Cavanagh thanks growers and carriers for taking the time to complete the survey.

“We are currently reviewing the valuable feedback we received through the postharvest survey, which helps us identify what we are doing well, and where we can improve and make changes,” Gavin says.

Our preliminary findings from this year’s postharvest survey show:

  • Growers identified having access to multiple buyers as the most important service provided by Viterra. This was also amongst the highest rated options when asking growers why they chose to deliver to Viterra this harvest.
  • Growers and carriers rated service from Viterra employees the highest of all services at site. Ratings for classification and opening hours also remained positive year on year.
  • Our online services (Viterra website, Ezigrain, Viterra app and digital delivery advice) were highly rated by growers and carriers, with over 75% of respondents rating each service either excellent or very good.
  • Growers and carriers recognise that Viterra highly values safety based on their experience at our sites.

We will share a full summary of results including future focus areas soon.

Crows and Viterra join forces to support regional footy

The Adelaide Football Club and leading agriculture network Viterra are throwing their support behind South Australia’s regional football clubs as part of a new partnership unveiled in February.

As Adelaide’s official Regional Partner, Viterra will work with the Club to add value to regional communities through a range of events and initiatives scheduled across the next two years.

The partnership is centred on past and present Crows AFL and AFLW players travelling to regional areas to participate in local football club match days, support non-match day events and host junior coaching clinics. Clubs will also be provided with Country Crow Memberships.

The first regional clubs to benefit from the programme will be the Eastern Eyre Ranges Football Club from Cleve/Rudall on the Eyre Peninsula, Bute Football Club from Bute on the Yorke Peninsula, and the Southern Mallee Suns from Lameroo/Pinnaroo in the Murray Mallee region.
