AWB Limited
AWB Limited was a major grain marketing organisation based in Australia. It was a government body known as the Australian Wheat Board until 1 July 1999, when the AWB was transformed into a private company, owned by wheat growers. In 2010, AWB was acquired by the Canadian firm Agrium, and in 2011 the company changed its name to Agrium Asia Pacific Limited. In 2011 Cargill Australia acquired the AWB Commodity Management business from Agrium. This follows the ACCC’s decision on March 17, 2011 not to oppose the acquisition.
