South East Premium Wheat Growers Association

SEPWA is a farmer initiated group that was started in 1993 to represent wheat growers in the Esperance Port Zone.

The group was formed to address the perception that wheat from the south east was of inferior quality to that of wheat from other regions and set about assisting growers in the region to produce premium quality grain to improve our market position.

SEPWA has moved on since this original aim but still strongly retains it as part of its major objectives and in more recent times has expanded into barley and canola.

Today SEPWA's role is to improve profitability and sustainability of Esperance Port Zone grain growers.
