Mission & Team

WIMMERA HEALTH GRAIN was established in 2004, with the aim to produce, process and supply top quality speciality grains to the Australian health food market. First it was decided to concentrate on the most prominent of these, namely Spelt and to establish a category with the highest possible quality standard of this unique grain. The group of company grower shareholders were all selected for their expertise and devotion to achieve top quality. They also include certified organic and biodynamic growers. Our closed group concept gives the company a distinct from paddock to plate monitoring advantage. The immediate aim is to be the major supplier of the very best quality organically and chemical free gown Spelt in the southern States of Australia. Other health food grains remain under consideration for the future.
