THEY might not look like much, but these humble sponge cakes could represent a major international deal for Griffith wheat growers.
Last week, representatives from one of China's biggest flour mills took over Driver Country Oven to test-bake flour milled from local wheat.
Two bakers were flown from China to cook cakes, noodles and bread and determine how the flour fared.
The Chinese company has already toured through Victoria chasing the best quality wheat directly from farmers.
For Northern Riverina Grains (NRG) - a co-op consisting of local farmers - a deal with the company could result in it exporting in excess of 20,000 tonnes of wheat this year alone.
"They're aiming to be the number one flour mill in China," NRG chairman Andy Ryan said.
"We're offering wheat direct from the farmer to the mill.
"Traceability is really important to these guys."
Company spokesman Cao Qzang said the flour mill had conducted many tests to seek out the best quality wheat available to make noodles, bread and cakes.
Mr Qzang said there was a "huge market" for Australian wheat in China because the high quality was well recognised.
He said personal wealth was increasing in China and people were seeking out higher quality food products and were prepared to pay more for them.
