Statement by Victorian Farmers Federation Grains Group president Brett Hosking about his comments in the article 'Grains collapse move' on the Bendigo Advertiser website and in Country:
''A recent article in the Bendigo Advertiser (Grain collapse move) regarding grain company insolvencies mistakenly listed Blue Lake Milling as one of those affected companies.
''I apologise for any confusion this may have caused Blue Lake Milling and their growers. Blue Lake Milling is an active purchaser of grain in the Victorian and South Australian market.
''Blue Lake Milling has a loyal group of suppliers who return year after year to trade with the company based on the relationships they have developed over time.
''One of the key objectives of the VFF Grains Group is to foster a competitive grains marketplace and companies such as Blue Lake Milling represent a valuable part of our supply chain.
''Specialising in oat milling, they offer packaging, processing and exporting of various grains and provide niche opportunities for growers who supply them with grain.''
