AAA NSW Agribusiness Breakfast
Wednesday, 15th Oct at UUSC
We welcome you to our next breakfast,
'Australian Beef Industry – Opportunities and Challenges'
The opportunity to hear from someone who has spent his lifetime working in the meat industry, is a ground breaker who understands markets, works on finding opportunities and converting these to market focused reality.
Guest Speaker: Mr Richard RainsRichard is a director of Paraway Pastoral Co Ltd and the Arcadian Organic & Natural Meat Co. He is a member of the Advisory Board of the Australian Export Council; and Cattle Council of Australia and former CEO of Sanger Australia. He is also the recipient of the 2012 Export Hero’s award and 2013 Special Industry Recognition Award.More >>
Richard grew up on a mixed farm in the central west of NSW was educated in Sydney and did a cadetship with Dalgety ending up in their beef export division where in 1974 he sold the first beef to Korea. This market quickly grew to become Australia’s third largest export market for beef. Richard then joined Sanger in 1976 and became majority shareholder in 2000. In the late 1990’s he convinced McDonalds that they should use Aussie beef in their burgers in North America and was instrumental in establishing that trade for Australia. This led to Sanger supplying beef to McDonalds, not only in USA but also Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, and much of South East Asia as well as domestically in Australia.
Richard has recently returned from China and is well placed to share his views on where the opportunities lie for Australian beef and some of the challenges producers and processors will have to overcome.
