Wayne Cascio Award for Organisational Development and Leadership

GRAINCORP

INITIATIVE STATEMENT

Over the last three years, GrainCorp has transformed itself from a company that was predominately an east coast Australian grain logistics company, to a global food and ingredients company. In conjunction with significant global acquisitions, the company has redefined how it operates to drive business performance and attract and develop a high calibre of people who are passionate about the business and industry. This was enabled by an integrated and systematic program clearly setting the strategic vision, re designing the organisation, developing leaders and talent, strengthening engagement and improving performance. This has resulted in a substantial improvement in financial performance, reduction in variability of earnings and growth.

ORGANISATION STATEMENT

People around the world are asking: 'How will we feed the world's population in 2050?' GrainCorp is ideally positioned to contribute to this challenge.

GrainCorp owns the largest grain storage network in eastern Australia and is the largest exporter of grain from eastern Australia. It has the largest integrated edible oil crushing and refining business in Australia and New Zealand and is a leading Australian flour miller. It is the world's fourth largest malt producer, the key ingredient in beer and whisky.

GrainCorp connects growers with customers around the world. Their strategic supply chain, premier processing assets and expertise, position them well to help meet the world's food demand.
