Livestock producers and supply chain stakeholders will be interested to hear that following the development of a business case, PKF Accelerate are holding investor information sessions right across our region starting the week beginning 30th August.
RDA AHFKI announced in May this year that it was sponsoring the development of a business case and investor offering to facilitate the re-opening of the abattoir. It is a critical service for the regions livestock producers, and necessary for those creating value in their own brands and paddock-to-plate models.
The re-opened abattoir will operate on the basis of a co-operative model – partly to ensure its long-term financial sustainability, and partly so that as many stakeholders as possible have the opportunity to participate in its success: agricultural producers, butchers, supermarkets, restaurants, providers of goods or services to the abattoir, and so on.
The abattoir will have a strong focus on serving the needs of the regions’ livestock producers and wholesale/retail supply chains by providing efficient, quality service at a reasonable price. It will also be fully technology-enabled from the outset, to facilitate ease of booking and payment, enable ‘paddock-to-plate’-type offerings, and the creation of premium, local products and brands.
The minimum investment amount will be $5,000.
