Mellco Pty Ltd was launched in January 2015.
Mellco is a 100% Australian owned and operated business that was established to meet a market need in representing the segment of grain growers seeking to extract value from customised grain production.
The business is being headed by the well-known grain industry identity, Mr. Steve Mellington.
Mellco will initially be targeting high value grains such as durum wheat, organic grains, noodle wheat, and specialty malt barleys for the domestic and export market.
Mellco is already active in the durum wheat marketplace working closely with domestic and international processors. In addition, a close working relationship has been established with the plant breeding community to assist the alignment between future market needs and current breeding priorities.
"After spending all year nurturing a quality product, I’m comforted knowing that Mellco is working with me to find a market that understands its worth."
"Our industry has historically struggled with consistency of supply, but we now have the launch of a promising new variety as well as a new marketer that is dedicated to finding the best market solutions. I’m now feeling pretty confident about our future."
"The appetite for Australian durum is not your limitation in our marketplace, creating a reliable and sustainable supply point is your challenge, hopefully Mellco can fill a market gap to the benefit of the Australian grower and the global market place."
