NEWS – FORREST BUYS HARVEY BEEF
ANDREW Forrest’s Minderoo Group is the new owner of Harvey Beef. In a shock deal announced last Friday, Minderoo says it has signalled its strong belief in the future of Australia’s
agricultural industry with the purchase of WA’s biggest beef abattoir. Mr Forrest says he has always been a firm believer and an even stronger supporter of the Australian
agricultural industry. “Harvey Beef has been an iconic brand for almost a century and I am delighted to work with its team to ensure Harvey Beef makes a significant and growing contribution to the State’s economy; and Australia’s agricultural industry for the next century,” Mr Forrest said. “Harvey Beef is WA’s only accredited beef exporter to China. “Following detailed discussions with the Chinese leadership, we are determined to ensure that the Australian agricultural industry’s future in China is just as bright as our mining future. “We hope this acquisition will send a strong message of confidence in the future of the industry. To provide confidence to increase supply and make Australia the supplier of choice to meet Asia’s long term food security requirements.”
