Agribusiness


Western Australia is known for its quality agriculture. This reputation is underpinned by strict quarantine requirements, a focus on agricultural research and development, and our willingness to innovate. Our world-class food crops, livestock farming, fisheries and horticulture are in high demand in Asia and around the world.

Whether you’re a producer, wholesaler, investor, retailer or exporter, you want to sustain profitable growth and take advantage of unique investment opportunities in the agriculture sector. This is now being challenged by food safety issues and access to vital resources like water and experienced labour.

As a business, you’re constantly looking for new ways to improve the value of your supply chain, transport products more efficiently and diversify your interests. Structurally the industry is also changing. As globalisation and consolidation becomes the norm, finding new ways to protect your interests and manage your risks becomes more important.

We have a long history supporting agribusiness in Western Australia and understand how the industry operates. We can help your business navigate agriculture law from understanding food hygiene regulations to commercial and business law. We can also help you take advantage of agribusiness opportunities as they arise and connect you with influential people and organisations in the industry.
