Frequently asked questions

For Corporate Membership

What value does GBA add?

GBA provides valuable advice and support to help you navigate the volatile grain markets and achieve your business goals. We help to develop your personalised grain marketing plan, aiming to balance production risk exposure against maximising farmgate return. On average, we add value of $35 per tonne.

What communication does GBA offer?

Every member is assigned a dependable broker who serves as their primary point of contact. As a member, you have the privilege of contacting your broker anytime via phone, text, or email without any limit. Our goal is to visit you on farm and have a face-to-face catch-up with you once or twice a year.

What are the fees involved?

To become a member, we require an initial commitment payment. This is a credit which can be used for future sales. Once this credit is exhausted, members are charged a monthly brokerage fee that is discounted based on their membership agreement. The size of the initial investment is proportional to the total tonnage produced by the member, meaning larger producers must invest more upfront but receive greater discounts on their brokerage fees. For questions regarding pricing please call us.

Will grain be sold without my knowledge?

We always make sure to have a discussion with the grower before selling any grain (unless previously agreed on via a firm target). Our aim is to keep our growers informed and aligned, working together towards the same goals.

Will you handle contract administration?

Using grade arbitration, we can handle all contracts and nominations efficiently. Additionally, we are capable of creating EPR reports and conducting PPSR registrations for each contract to safeguard your interests until the settlement.

Do you offer spread trades?

GBA offers the option to facilitate spread trades among growers, when appropriate, to guarantee secure payment. This service is accessible to both members and non-members, for trading spreads on contracts or for arbitration purposes, in instances when a grower is unable to fulfill a contract.
