Grain SA provides commodity strategic support and services to South African grain producers to support sustainability. Formed out of NAMPO (maize), NOPO (soybeans, sunflower and groundnuts), the WPO (wheat, barley and oats) and the SPO (grain sorghum), Grain SA aspires to be involved in all matters bearing on the wellbeing of the industry. Grain SA is a voluntary association of grain farmers established to represent the interests of its members. The organisation strives to be recognised as autonomous and independent, is strongly apolitical and issues are dealt with only on merit and sound business principles without any party political consideration. Grain SA is controlled by farmers for farmers and structured to ensure members’ democratic control over their elected office bearers.
