South Wales Grains Board said today it has sold the largest
cargo of canola to ever leave to Australia.
The 57,500 tonne shipment is valued at $A26 million
($US16.53 million) and will lead to a record shipping
program for 1998 which is expected to total 350,000 to
400,000 tonnes, it said.
Graham Lawrence, managing director of the NSW Grains Board
said the cargo is bound for oilseed crushing plants in
Europe. "Europe has moved to become a major buyer this year
because Australia is the only country to guarantee non
genetic modified canola," he said.
