WESTERN Australian grain grower owned research investment company the Council of Grain Grower Organisations has promoted executive officer Geoff Smith to CEO as commercialisation continues for new canola and wheat varieties it has invested in.
COGGO is a major shareholder in Grain Biotech Australia and Canola Breeders WA, which will both have new varieties growing in the State for the first time next season.
The imminent release of these new varieties prompted the COGGO board to create the new CEO’s position.
