The CBH Group is Australia’s largest co-operative and a leader in the Australian grain industry, with operations extending along the value chain, including grain storage, handling, transport, marketing and processing.

We strive to continually improve our infrastructure from site feedback and innovation leading to a strong pipeline of work.
