Overview

The Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) was formed in 2008 with the merger of NACMA WA, Oilseeds WA, the Western Oat Alliance, the Western Region Barley Council and Pulse WA, to form one association to represent the interests of those in the grain supply chain. The key focus is to provide industry leadership, improve communications and nurture capacity building within the industry.

Today, GIWA has seven Councils including GIWA Wheat Council, GIWA Barley Council, GIWA Trade Council, GIWA Oilseeds Council, GIWA Pulse Council, GIWA Oat Council and GIWA AGI Council.

In addition, a number of working groups have been formed to focus on areas such as Grain Standards, biosecurity, research, transport etc. GIWA's purpose is to grow the value and profitability of the whole Western Australian grain industry

Through:

  • Leadership and industry self-regulation
  • Facilitating communication and information exchange
  • Providing solutions for grain supply chain issues
