Agriculture is WA’s next biggest industry. It is diversifying, innovating and investing as it enjoys an envious growth trajectory based on ever-increasing demand for food and textiles.
Join us for breakfast to hear from our experts, CBH Group’s Ben Macnamara and Harvest Road’s Paul Slaughter, as they share their deep knowledge about the sector, its opportunities and challenges.
Both run organisations are ranked in the state’s top five agribusinesses with combined revenue worth more than $3.9 billion. Between them they employ around 1800 staff and export their produce throughout Asia and beyond.
Ben has leveraged a finance background to become an operational leader at cooperative giant CBH, WA’s biggest agribusiness. He oversaw its world-class storage and handling, logistics and shipping services before becoming chief executive in December 2021.
A high energy, values driven and results-based leader, Paul brought diverse experience in food, beverage and FMCG at big consumer brands before stepping in to run the agricultural assets of the Forrest family’s private investment vehicle Tattarang.
