Barley Australia 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 any issues and concerns can be presented and discussed.
The four committees
Grain Industry of Western Australia (GIWA) – the Western Barley Council – WBC
Northern Region Barley Advisory Committee – NRBAC
South Eastern Australia Barley Advisory Council – SEABAC
South Australian Barley Advisory Committee – SABAC
These Committees meet twice a year in their region to discuss and review the issues around barley for the region and for the industry.
A small annual membership fee applies to support the activities of the Committees.
Attendance at these meeting is encouraged and new members are welcomed.
