Central Queensland grain growers are set to benefit from a dedicated local grain marketing presence thanks to a new office opened by Philp Brodie Grain in Rockhampton as reported on Channel 7 news.

Member for Capricornia Ms Michelle Landry MP and Rockhampton Regional Council Mayor Margaret Strelow were on hand to cut the ribbon and officially open the Quay street office on Friday.

Both Ms Landry and Mayor Strelow said the new grain office is a boost for the region’s economic future and its agricultural industry which until now has more typically been associated with beef production.
