The Vietnamese market is one of Australia’s top four wheat export markets importing around 2.9 million tonnes in the 2021/22 season.

The market for Australian wheat is predominantly ASW & APW for both milling and feed purposes.

Vietnam is also an important and growing market for both feed and malting barley. In 2021/22 Vietnam imported approximately 550,000 tonnes of barley, with around 150,000 tonnes of malting barley.

Vietnam is ranked 9th in terms of total beer consumption well ahead of Australia ranked 23rd in the world demonstrating the importance of this market for Australian growers.

CBH Marketing and Trading are supplying all the major flour millers in Vietnam as well as working with Interflour in supplying wheat and high-quality malting barley from Western Australia.

Connecting growers to our international customers

For the past two decades, CBH has regularly offered growers the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the grain industry and gain insights into customer requirements through the Grower Study Tour.

The Tour takes a group of growers overseas to visit some of Australia’s most important grain export markets and origin countries. Previous tours have visited Japan, South Korea, China, the Middle East and the Black Sea Region.

It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to gain a unique insight into markets, customer needs and take in the wonderful cultural offerings from key grain markets.
