About AEGIC

AEGIC engages with international customers of Australian grain to understand more about the specific quality attributes they need to make the best possible products for their consumers. We combine this with analysis of long-term economic and demand trends to identify new markets and opportunities for Australian grain.

This intelligence helps the Australian industry breed, grow, classify and supply grain that markets prefer to buy.

The benefits flow to everyone across the grain supply chain, from the grower in Australia, whose grain is valued internationally, to the consumer in Jakarta, Beijing, Tokyo, Seoul or New Delhi who enjoys excellent noodles, baked products and beer made from Australian grain.

AEGIC increases value by

  • IDENTIFYING the current and future grain requirements of international millers, processors, maltsters and brewers.
  • ANALYSING market information and economic data to understand future market trends and opportunities.
  • EMPOWERING the Australian grains industry with intelligence to help breed, grow, classify and supply grain that meets market requirements.
  • INNOVATING to develop new products and opportunities for Australian grain.
  • EDUCATING international users with technical information and in-market support so they can optimise the value of Australian grain.

AEGIC also offers commercial grain quality testing and food analysis for a range of valued clients in Sydney and Perth. Please click here for details.
