Wheat accounts for the majority of Australia’s grain production and is used for the production of breads, noodles and pastas. 🍞🍝🍜 Australia produces just three per cent of the world’s wheat (about 25 million tonnes per annum) but accounts for 10-15% of the world’s 100 million tonne annual global wheat trade. The Australian wheat industry is export oriented, shipping about 65-75% of the nation’s total production to more than 50 countries.
The majority of Australian wheat is exported in bulk cargoes with the top 10 importing countries accounting for 70-80% of exports. Home and Away, Australian wheat is always highly sort after.
