What we do

The CBH Group is Australia’s largest co-operative and a leader in the Australian grain industry, with operations extending along the value chain from fertiliser to grain storage, handling, transport, marketing and processing.

Returning value to growers since 1933

Owned and controlled by approximately 3,700 Western Australian grain growing businesses, the core purpose of CBH is to sustainably create and return value to WA grain growers, current and future.

Co-operatives are organisations that are owned, controlled and used by their members. They exist to deliver benefits to their members and are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity.

Our storage and handling system currently receives and exports around 90 per cent of the Western Australian grain harvest and is regarded as one of the best in the world.

The CBH Group consists of three core business activities: Operations (storage and handling), Marketing and Trading, and Fertiliser

In Operations, CBH has a network of more than 100 grain receival sites across Western Australia and four export port terminals. We own a state-of-the-art rail fleet dedicated to the most efficient transfer of grain from our receival sites to the port terminals.

The co-operative’s Marketing and Trading arm is the leading grain acquirer in Western Australia, Australia's largest grain exporter, and has operations in eastern Australia, as well as offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo.

CBH Fertiliser begun operations in 2015, providing Western Australian growers more choice in the granular fertiliser market. 

CBH Group also has investments across the grain value chain.

In 2004, CBH acquired a 50 per cent stake in Interflour Group. From its Head Office in Singapore, Interflour operates nine flour mills in Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia, including a grain port terminal in Vietnam, and Intermalt, a malting house in Vietnam.

In 2016, CBH acquired Blue Lake Milling, a leading manufacturer of premium Australian oat products operating in South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia.

CBH has total assets of around $1.8 billion Australian dollars and employs approximately 1,100 permanent employees and up to 1,800 casual employees during the harvest period from October through to January.
