Wheat is the major grain that is produced in WA which contributes $2-3 billion to the state’s economy. WA generates approximately 50% of Australia’s total wheat production which is mainly exported to Asian and Middle Eastern countries.
The national wheat exports account for 3% of Australia’s total export revenue. Although Australia is a relatively small producer of wheat, it accounts for 15-18% of the world’s total export making it a major participant in the export market.
Despite WA producing the majority of Australia’s wheat, approximately 90% of the wheat produced in WA is exported. WA produces white-grained varieties that generate a bright white flour with a high flour milling yield. In addition to this, there are only a few large scale flour milling companies in WA: Allied Mills (Dingo Flour), Millers foods (Byford Flour Mill), MAURIanz, and Eden Valley Biodynamic Farm.
