Grain Industry Association
of Western Australia

The Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) was established in 2008 in response to the deregulation of the Australian wheat market and the disbanding of the Australian Wheat Board.

GIWA is a not-for-profit, whole of value chain member industry association incorporated under the WA Associations Incorporation Act 2015. Its' purpose is to support an effective and efficient export-oriented Western Australian grain industry. GIWA facilitates communication, information exchange, capacity building and grain supply chain solutions for Western Australia.

GIWA’s members include researchers, plant breeders, seed cleaners and distributors, growers, grower groups, agronomists, farm business advisors, input service providers, domestic feed and food grain processors, bulk and container logistics service providers, and the trade.


GIWA was the coordinating industry partner for the DPIRD COVID-19 Western Australia Grain Industry Response Group. These meetings have concluded unless a particular COVID-19 issue arises, in which case DPIRD will reconvene the network; resources can be found here
