AUSTRALIA - The Australian Agricultural Company has won the Australian Export Awards Agribusiness category for its success in supplying Australian beef to the world.
The award was for “outstanding international success in the field of agricultural products, services and technology including processed foods and beverages and the forestry, fisheries and fibres industries”.
AACo managing director Jason Strong (pictured) said that the award recognised the effort the company had put into transforming itself from a pastoral company to a global beef business.
“AACo is now providing premium beef to more than 20 countries around the world,” he said.
“We supply about 50 per cent of all Australia’s premium Wagyu beef exports.
“The award recognises that we are now a truly vertically integrated business – from our cattle herds on our stations in Northern Australia to our world class marketing and supply chain and now to our new A$91million Livingstone Beef processing facility near Darwin.”
It is the second time AACo has won the National Agribusiness Export Award, previously winning in 2012.
