Who We Are

Founded in 1973, we strive to build opportunities for primary producers by taking their high-quality and trusted agricultural products to markets and communities around the globe.

Our operations include the export of livestock, genetics and our own elite Wagyu cattle to more than 26 countries. We also develop traceability and management systems to help ensure supply chain transparency and to prioritise world-leading animal care.

Our Priorities

Quality Transport

We use only world-class transportation vehicles and vessels to move our livestock over sea, air, road, and rail.

International Leadership

We lead the world in animal health and wellbeing, and pioneer innovation across the supply chain – including our own traceability system LivestockOne.

Developing People

We employ more than 130 people in Australia and New Zealand, and create opportunities for many more across eight international offices, onboard vessels, and in customer nations.

Low-stress Handling

We work with some of the world’s best minds in animal behaviour to design custom handling facilities, and train our staff and supply chain partners in low-stress techniques.

Global Networks

We have operations in New Zealand, Australia, USA, Europe, Uruguay and Chile serving over 26 markets including Japan, Taiwan, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, Turkey, and the Middle East.

Boosting Agriculture

We trade with over 10,000 primary producers in New Zealand and Australia. In FY2019, we contributed $250 million in export income direct to producers and rural communities.
