Agribusiness in Australia has changed drastically in the past 50 years and continues to do so.
As the sector has become more sophisticated, its legal requirements have become more complex. The increased demand from international markets, particularly in Asia, opens up enormous opportunity for Australia to position itself as a global food power.
The challenge is to grow with the sector whilst navigating the complexity and changing trends of agribusiness law.
