WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA — CBH Group will hold a series of meetings across the wheatbelt starting March 28 to update grower members on important developments at the co-operative including outcomes from the recent structure review and the roll-out of quality optimization.

CBH Group Chairman Neil Wandel said growers and their families would receive invitations to the meetings in coming days and he encouraged all to attend.

"CBH is owned by the growers of Western Australia and we are proud to be an extension of their business," he said. "There are several major initiatives in progress which will improve the value we return value to growers in coming months and years and it is important they hear more about these before the new season gets under way.”

These include the board's decision on CBH's future structure, the need to modernize the coop’s constitution, the roll-out of quality optimization and CBH's investment in the grain rail network.

"As the biggest grain exporter in Western Australia, CBH also believes it is timely to give our members an update on the grain market outlook and our market development activities," Wandel said.

The meetings kick off in Carnamah on March 28 and wind up in Esperance on April 15. Wandel will join Chief Executive Officer Andrew Crane, General Manager Operations Colin Tutt, and General Manager CBH Grain Brian Mumme in hosting the meetings.
