WAFARMERS has renewed its alliance with the Emerald Group in a move which aims to give Western Australian growers access to specialised grain marketing options.
WAFarmers president Dale Park said the organisation was pleased to continue its association with Emerald.
“The partnership with Emerald means we can provide Western Australia’s grain growers with more choice in their grain marketing strategies and finance options,” Mr Park said.
Emerald chairman and CEO Alan Winney said the partnership was a key component of Emerald’s commitment to WA growers.
“Emerald’s focus is on supporting grain growers and their communities, which is why we’re pleased to renew our relationship with Western Australia’s largest farmer advocacy group.
“WAFarmers does a fantastic job making sure farmers can run their businesses without unnecessary costs, red tape or regulation,” Mr Winney said.
“In order to see their farm business develop, grain growers also need marketing and finance options geared to enhance their profits and meet their cash flow requirements.”
As part of the new arrangement, Emerald will develop products for WAFarmers members and supportive grain growers depending on growers’ needs - these could include pool, cash, contract, hedging or finance products.
