Australian Wheat has been unavailable to the Lebanese mills
and consumers for over 20 years, and more precisely, since
1975 when the Lebanese government took over the imports.
But fortunately, since 1996 about 400,000 mt of Australian
Wheat have been imported into Lebanon by CFM.
In a concern of ensuring a steady and regular supply of
the best quality wheat, CFM makes use of Australian Wheat:
In partnership with the Australian Wheat Board Ltd. (AWB)
and Ronly Holdings, a U.K. based trading house, CFM is able
to purchase this wheat at competitive prices in combination
vessels with Turkey and Egypt.
On the other hand, we have built a relationship where we
find strategic solutions to our needs, with about 20 suppliers
dealing in wheat origination and trading and who are members
of the board in Geneva. We also have direct relationship
with wheat exporting companies in many countries in Europe.
Some of our lead suppliers are:
General Trading and Services - Geneva
Cargill International - Geneva
Australian Wheat Board
Aston Agro-Industrial AG
