Our recent awards and achievements


CBH extended its global trading footprint in 2015 to set up an additional grain trading and accumulations business in Krasnador, Russia.

The business will be branded Granary, a name that was chosen due to its familiarity in English, and for its easy translation into Russian.

It strengthens CBH's offering to our existing customers in North Africa, Asia and the Middle East by providing varieties of grain prevalent in the Black Sea region, but currently not grown in Australia.

We're Australia's No.1 co-op

The CBH Group has been named the number one co-operative in Australia by turnover at the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM) Leaders' Summit.

The CBH Group was also ranked fourth in a recent BRW list of Private Australian businesses recognising in part the strength of the co-operative and mutual economy in Australia.

The Top 100 data and associated analysis is drawn directly from a study commissioned by the BCCM and undertaken by the University of Western Australia: "2014: The Top 100 Co-operatives and Mutuals in Australia" soon to be released by UWA as a standalone publication.

CBH Launches new trains

First locomotive unveiledOn Friday 24 August 2012, our $175 million investment in a new fleet of locomotives and wagons was officially launched at Metro Grain Centre in front of a crowd of 700 people. Guests included growers, employees, customers and partners, government and industry representatives.

The event celebrated the purchase of 22 new locomotives, each named after historic rail sidings across the WA wheatbelt, and 574 new purpose-built wagons, of which 446 are narrow gauge and 128 standard gauge. GM Operations Colin Tutt said the launch marked two years of dedication and hard work from the CBH team to bring the vision of growers owning their own rail fleet to life.

"We will go from strength to strength this year as each train is commissioned and growers see more tonnes moving to port more efficiently," he said. "The trains have state-of-the-art technology and across the fleet we'll have more horsepower to achieve faster journeys to port and faster turnaround times at sites. 

"The locomotives have distributed power which means they can push and pull, allowing us to operate more efficiently and be far more productive. This coupled with our new light-weight aluminium wagons will revitalise rail in Western Australia."
