WHAT INSPIRED EPCBH
Competition issues in the Australian grain industry have been well documented and exhaustively reported on.
Grain Producers SA has conducted grower surveys for the past five years. The highest priority has consistently been storage, handling costs and efficiencies, and issues associated within the current supply chain facilities. Notably, an inherent lack of freight and export alternatives was evident.
EPCBH identified the need to improve export outcomes for growers. Our aim is to improve returns to growers by the provision of a competitive supply chain.’
It is for these reasons that the EPCBH has been formed.
EPCBH represents farmers from all regions across the Eyre Peninsula. We have advanced our vision through:
- partnering with Adelaide-based resources company, Iron Road Limited, developer of the Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP);
- and Macquarie Capital) working together to establish a storage handling and export facility at Iron Road’s proposed deep sea port at Cape Hardy.
