During the month of September Greg and Jason visited the Nestle procurement team in Kuala Lumper. The Nestle company has recently had a restructure in staff. In the past each Nestle factory had their own domestic buyer where now each commodity has its own individual buyer for all Nestle factories in the world. This restructure could bring opportunities for Croker’s to increase export tonnage as we will be working and communicating with one specialist buyer. A lower Australian dollar would help our cause.
While in Malaysia the boys also visited the Federal Oat Mill in Penanag. We are excited at the opporturnity to be working with FOM and we are anticipating that we will create a long term relationship that will benefit Oat growers in the Riverina.
