CHS is an independent, farmer owned co-operative with a strong focus on helping growers and a tradition of partnership throughout its network. The Agfarm business will continue with the same grower focus and commitment to improving outcomes for their clients. As a marketer of more than 50 million tonnes of grain and oilseed annually, CHS will provide Agfarm with global grain intelligence, strong marketing expertise and broader export opportunities, to benefit our growers. CHS will also provide the support needed for Agfarm to develop even better services with more innovative products.
Ruralco is a leading Australian agribusiness with more than forty specialist businesses operating across its network.
They have over 500 outlets across Australia and each of their businesses operates under its own brand with its own culture, service model and unique value proposition.
Agfarm’s strong customer focus, combined with access to capital from Ruralco and exposure to the CRT network, has supported strong growth in the Agfarm business in recent years. With two well funded owners in CHS and Ruralco, Agfarm can continue to access capital to grow.
As part of this group, Agfarm has identified synergies and relationships with the broader Ruralco network through the Agfarm Advantage and Agfarm Accelerate products.
