Having worked with a number of national (Twynam Pastoral Co, Ricegrowers Coop Ltd) and global (Exeed Industries, Cargill Inc, Nestle SA, Bayer AG) companies, as well as industry bodies including oilseeds (canola, soybeans), stockfeed, petfood and grain milling, in regional, capitol and international locations, has provided me a unique insight, specialisation and experience of the Australian agribusiness sector. I have also toured extensively through the grain/oilseed supply chains of the United States, Brazil and Argentina. In addition, I have completed projects in the United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.
All these experiences have allowed me to develop a perspective of Australia as both a highly regarded exporter and sought after import destination. In these international roles I have developed a keen understanding of the various subtleties of international regulatory and biotechnology environments.
Having now completed a number of integrated managements systems incorporating several ISO Standards and OSHA, I have a good working knowledge of building best in class management and compliance programs.
In addition I have a solid background in working with a number of Australian government agencies including APVMA, DAFF, DFAT, AQIS and OGTR. I have successfully worked with a number of these agencies on regulatory compliance, import/export regulations and biotechnology issues. read more
