Meet our Partners

The Agribusiness Regional Development Association proudly collaborates with government, industry and business organisations to support the growth and development of regional food and beverage producers and manufacturers. With decades of experience across the agriculture supply chain, our strong connections mean we can connect our members with the right people, and the right support, whatever the challenge.

Our high-profile network of partners delivers the experience and expertise you need at all stages of your business development journey, from understanding what business structure will work best for you and protecting your intellectual property to selling your products seamlessly through eCommerce or getting to grips with the nuances of trading with international partners. Contact our partners directly or get in touch with ARDA to find out how our partnership alliances can work for you.

The Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) extends grants under its Package Assisting Small Exporters (PASE) program. These funds support small exporters in overcoming the barriers they face when exporting. ARDA has been awarded funding by DAWE to deliver a comprehensive Market Diversification Program to help businesses develop their unique value proposition and access new market channels. The program will help participants overcome impediments to trade, build value and develop a strong regional brand.

Intellectual property (IP) is an invaluable asset for any small or medium enterprise (SME), and protecting IP is critical to the success of a business, protecting your brand and ideas. 

Every business should consider IP protection as part of their initial business strategy. IP Australia administers IP rights and legislation relating to patents, trade marks, designs and plant breeder’s rights, advising government and Australian businesses on how to make the most of their IP.

IP Australia and ARDA are working together to provide regional agribusinesses with the right information and tools to support business development and commercialisation, and protect their unique value proposition.
