Feed, Oil & Fats
The vast pastoral bases of Australia, New Zealand and the Americas offers us a broad choice of soft commodities to procure, process, trade and export, both locally and abroad.
In 2011, our group formed a strategic alliance with Cootamundra Oilseeds with the goal to expand the production of Canola Oil, Meal and other specialty products which include organic varieties.
With several decades of international trading experience behind us we also source from select industries around the globe. This broad reach enables us at any time to procure and deliver from the most competitive and reliable sources.
We supply the following vegetable and animal commodities:
- Palm Kernel Meal
- Soybean Meal
- Sunflower Seed Meal
- Cotton Seed Meal
- Linseed Meal
- Safflower Meal

We are able to supply specialised requests to match end product quality requirements.
For example, organic protein meals, GMO free, certain min/max specifications on animal/veg proteins/oils etc.
We can discern between these given our broad knowledge and warehousing capabilities to match the special needs of our customers.
There is increasing demand to supply Australia’s transport industries with alternative bio-fuel options for blending. Currently 2 per cent of all fuel (B2) is produced from renewable resources with Government and Industry looking at a 20 percent blend (B20) by 2020. With diesel accounting for 50 per cent of Australia’s transport requirements, producing feedstock derived bio-diesel is now a critical focus for the bio energy industry.
As a strategic investment Standard Commodities has partnered with one of the world's leading bio-feedstock companies, Bioenergy Plantation Australia. With our knowledge in bio-feedstock we believe we are positioned to realise stellar growth in this sector.
Biomass offers several benefits:
- Commercially they are robust to grow, high yielding and simple to process.
- Such feedstock is grown on semi-arable land and so avoids competition with high value food production
- Biomass feedstock offers a competitive price point to synthetic oil-based fuels
The projects listed below, that we have chosen to develop, have renewable and sustainable accreditation.
Forage, Bed & Grain
We were a pioneer in the exporting of hay, cubes and pellets from Australia over 25 years ago. Today we export alfalfa hay, oaten hay and a variety of fibre commodities, including whole cottonseed, cereal straw, grasses and pellets.
In 2012, Standard Commodities and its partners acquired Australia's leading producer of bedding pellets for the equine and poultry sectors, Ekwizorb. Our partners include Australia's leading poultry companies, such as Inghams, Baiada and Hazeldene and leading horse trainers in Australia, Japan and Middle East.
We are active in exporting and trading grain through our sister company, Origin Grain, a boutique sized independently managed trading arm.
Origin Grain works closely with premier sources of grain that have:
- proven supply all year round
- capacity to increase supply – a must to satisfy our expanding client base
- stable pricing, particularly for volatile markets
- Oil Seeds
