Other Crops


Chickpeas - Macarenas

Our Macarena and other Kabuli-type chickpeas are large and light in colour and used by food processors and packagers around Australia to produce everything from healthy snacks and sprouts to hummus and falafel. Available in Jumbo, Large and Medium sizing (8mm to 10mm and above).

We also provide medium Desi variety chickpeas for general culinary use.


Popping Corn

We Only Grow Pop Corn
Unlike other corn producing companies, Bean Growers Australia only contracts and processes popping corn, with absolutely no other varieties of corn entering our system.  This assures that corn intended for milling (which will not pop) keeps out of your finished products

We “Supersize” Your Kernels
We use larger sieves when screening our pop corn to make sure you only get the best expansion rates.  The smaller kernels are diverted to birdseed manufacturers, who especially appreciate our food-grade standards.

We Colour Sort Every Line
In addition to our cleaning, de-stoning, and gravity cleaning we also run every line of popcorn through a colour sorting process as a final check for anything you would not want in your product.

We Diversify
We work with growers in several regions to produce different varieties, to ensure that in a regional weather event does not threaten supply.  We also carry butterfly and mushroom varieties from different seed lines to match the varying needs of pop corn poppers.

Food Safe, Quality and No GMO
Our HACCP and ISO 9001 certified practices ensures that our pop corn is food safe and of a high quality.  Using our Cretors Metric Volume Weight Tester we are able to test our popcorn at all stages of production.  As with all of our products, no raw material sourced by Bean Growers Australia is from material that has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.

 


Black Eye Cow Peas (Black Eye Beans)

Bean Growers Australia is proud to support Australian growers of Black Eye Cow Pea. Unlike almost all other providers, who must ship their Black Eyes from overseas, our locally grown product is fresher and has the same quality of appearance and nutritional value.


Field Peas & Lentils

Bean Growers Australia is proud to provide a range of field peas suitable for sprouting, culinary and pet seed applications.  We make sure to carry both round and dimpled dun peas, blue peas and specialty sprouting lines of the maple variety.

Red lentils, especially well suited to sprouting, are also on hand 12 months of the year.


Red Caloona Cowpeas

Red Caloona Cowpeas, also known as Poona Beans, are great for sprouting and general culinary use. Red Caloona beans are reddish brown in colour and kidney shaped. All of our Red Caloona crops are grown in Queensland and kept in stock year-round.
