AgTrade – a diversified agribusiness group
AgTrade is a global livestock, genetics, food security and biosecurity group, headquartered in Brisbane, Australia. We are proud to own and operate a diversified portfolio of global export agribusinesses, grown and developed over nearly 50 years.
Our economic and employment contribution
We are a significant part of the Australian and New Zealand rural economy, contributing hundreds of millions of dollars every year to rural and regional economies in both nations – most of which is paid to Australian and New Zealand primary producers and related rural businesses.
The Group today has over 160 team members located in Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, and trading partner nations. We are proud to have long-term relationships with over 15,000 farming and primary production businesses across both Australia and New Zealand.
Our heritage, ownership and experience
AgTrade and its predecessor entities have been operating continuously for almost half a century. Previously part of the Consolidated Pastoral Company, the business was taken private by management-led direct investment in 2009. The ownership and leadership team has maintained strong continuity, also expanding as the group has grown. Our board and leadership team have extensive experience in developing globally competitive agriculture to best international standards of veterinary practice, biosecurity, animal husbandry and traceability.
