Barley Australia also works closely with the four regional barley advisory committees around Australia. These committees were established to provide a local and regional meeting place for the various stakeholders- breeders, agronomists, seed companies, growers, maltsters, marketers, grain handlers and brewers - at which the issues and concerns from the market can be heard.

The four committees are

  • Grain Industry of Western Australia (GIWA) - the Western Barley Council - WBC
  • Northern Region Barley Advisory Council - NRBAC
  • South East Barley Advisory Council - SEBAC
  • South Australian Barley Advisory Council - SABAC

Each of these committees meest twice a year in their respective regions to discuss and review the issues around barley in the region. A small annual membership fee applies to support the activities of the Councils.

Attendance at these meeting is encouraged and new members are welcomed.
