    *IBISWorld industry overview


Agriculture and its associated business sector, plays a significant role in the Australian economy with our proximity to Asian economies of scale, and extensive free trade agreements across the globe. There is also significant international investment interest across the whole agricultural supply chain.  

We understand the challenges you face as a company operating in the agribusiness sector and can leverage our experience as a leading provider of audit, tax and advisory services to provide insight on current issues.  

Right now, Australian agribusiness represents a significant long-term business opportunity. Globally acknowledged for our clean environment and high-quality food production, Australian food producers can deliver both cash flow and long-term capital growth.  

The SW team includes food supply chain experts. We work with a wide range of operators in the Australian market and consistently provide value add opportunities to connect with and learn from others in the industry. We can assist in identifying the right agribusiness opportunities, as well as the transactional elements and the successful ongoing management of the asset.
