Elders - AUSVEG strategic partners

Updated: 29/09/2009

Elders Chief Operating Officer Mike Guerin and AUSVEG Chief Executive Officer Richard Mulcahy today announced that AUSVEG and Elders have forged a new strategic partnership.

Elders is Australia�s leading rural services organisation and its new strategic partner, AUSVEG, is the national peak industry body representing the interests of 9,000 Australian vegetable and potato growers.

Elders-AusVeg Partnership

�This represents a great opportunity for the Australian vegetable and potato industry to cooperate on a new level which will benefit the whole of industry,� said Mike Guerin.

�We are impressed with the advances that AUSVEG is taking within the horticulture industry and are delighted to be forging even closer links with them over this coming year�, he said.

The partnership will result in close collaboration between the two organisations on issues specific to the horticulture industry and enable growers to share in the collective expertise of the organisations.

�We are proud to be a part of this exciting new partnership with Elders, one of Australia�s most respected and successful rural organisations,� said Richard Mulcahy.

�Elders has a long and proven history of supporting Australian growers and this partnership is yet another indication of their commitment to our industry,� he said.

AUSVEG Chairman John Brent welcomed the partnership, �The AUSVEG Board believes this is a very significant partnership for both AUSVEG and the $3.7 billion wholesale Australian vegetable industry,� he said. �

Research and development initiatives will also form a key focus for the partners with Elders to be involved in a number of industry events planned to take place over the next 12 months.

Elders has identified horticulture as a key growth platform for their business, recognising the opportunity that the vegetable industry presents to Australia�s agribusiness sector.

Elders will also play a key role in the inaugural AUSVEG National Convention and Trade Show, and National Awards scheduled to be held in Queensland in June 2010.
