The "Fair Average Quality" standard (which custom has abbreviated to "F.A.Q.") originated in South Australia in 1888 soon after that State entered the export wheat market. It was designed as a wheat trading standard to meet the needs of overseas buyers and was later adopted by the other Australian States.
