Building on the strong foundation set by RIRDC, AgriFutures Australia is forging a bold new path for Australia’s rural industries. By anticipating global trends, discovering new knowledge, harnessing new technologies, and investing in people, AgriFutures Australia is set to transform these industries to meet future challenges and opportunities.
RIRDC has made an important contribution to Australian agriculture over the past 25 years. Our new identity is a culmination of hard work from past Directors, employees, farmers and partners, whom without, we would not be able to take this next step.
With new headquarters in regional NSW, the AgriFutures Australia team has spent the last ten months reflecting on the opportunities and challenges facing the agricultural sector. It has emerged with a ‘clear and unyielding mandate’ to grow the long-term prosperity of Australian rural industries through research and innovation.
According to AgriFutures Australia Chair, Mrs Kay Hull AM, AgriFutures Australia is more than just a name change, it represents the organisation’s renewed purpose and direction.
