Specialist International Agri Merchants and Manufacturers
Oilseeds, Oils & Fats
Vast Pastoral bases of Australia, New Zealand and the America’s offer us a broad choice of soft commodities to procure, trade and export here and abroad.
Since inception our group has formed alliances with the oilseed crushing sector including investment and management services with the goal to expand and diversify the production of NON GMO canola oil, meal and other specialty products which include organic varieties.
Grains & Legumes
Australia produces far more grains and legumes than it can consume and we are global exporters year round of these raw materials. Grains are legumes are grown typically from the autumn period midyear and harvested in the summer.
Feed Ingredients & Forage
Australia, North and South America and as well New Zealand are rich agricultural countries.
Through our offices and strong presence we source from these regions for export and trade to our clients in Asia, Middle East, Europe and Africa.
There is increasing demand to supply Australia’s transport industries with alternative bio-fuel options.
Diesel accounts for 50 per cent of Australia’s transport requirements, producing feedstock derived bio-diesel is now a critical focus for the bio energy industry.
For our buyers we offer a fine mix of product, price and delivery because we know their business needs well. This understanding enables us to anticipate their needs and minimise risk.
Australia, New Zealand, and America’s vast pastoral base offers us a broad choice of soft commodities to procure, process, trade and export, both locally and abroad.
We maintain our market savvy through a dynamic trading network established across core markets. This is not an administrative operation. It’s a ‘hands on’ business.
The Standard Commodities Story
Growth & Vision
Successfully operating for more than 30 years, our growth can be viewed in three distinct stages:
1989-2000: Commodities Trader
Standard Commodities started as a ’boutique’ trading firm bridging the gap between suppliers and buyers. Business was built on a foundation of strong supply relationships which ensured a reliable supply of high quality commodities mainly Grains, Oilseeds, Fats & Oils, Protein meals and Agri By-Products, at realistic pricing.
This niche positioning enabled us to expand our services around the globe to a network of buyers.
2001-2011: Commodity Services Partner
As the world welcomed a new millennium in 2000, we adjusted our business model to fit the connected on-line age.
Standard Commodities adapted its capability to operate as part of a transparent, end-to-end supply chain partnership with both our suppliers and buyers. In this new partnership, growth of one stakeholder has been dependent upon the growth of all.
2012 to now: Standard Commodities Value Adding Partner.
Standard Commodities, apart from its base in Australia has always been active in the USA and New Zealand, so it made sense to start offices in these countries, with SC New Zealand located in Christchurch and SC USA from San Francisco.
Predominantly trading and exporting agri commodities sourced from these major supply basins to the demand regions of the world, like Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa. The focus for the Group in the past decade has been to invest in sustainable manufacturing practices, adding value to the raw materials we procure and thus the local rural communities where our operations are based. This area of our business will continue to expand.
