CBH Group, Australia’s largest exporter of grain, announced the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer for its oats milling and processing subsidiary, Blue Lake Milling (BLM). Following an extensive search and selection process, Kevin Boyle commenced in the role on 20 August 2018, succeeding Ben Abbot who stepped down in June.

BLM is a wholly-owned subsidiary of CBH and a manufacturer of premium Australian oat products with operations in South Australia and Victoria. Its head office is in Bordertown, South Australia.

The new facility will enable BLM to service a growing export demand for oat products.
