“Rabobank’s commitment as a Principal Partner for Beef2024 and Beef2027 reinforces their dedication to the prosperity and growth of the Australian beef industry”, Mr Irwin said.

“Their support will undoubtedly contribute to the success and significance of this event as the Australian and global beef community come together to celebrate the achievements of the beef sector.

Rabobank group executive for Country Banking Australia, Marcel van Doremaele said the bank is proud to continue a partnership with Beef Australia that began back in 1988.

“As a specialist agribusiness bank, Rabobank recognises the importance of supporting key industry events, such as Beef 2024, that bring together representatives from across the beef sector – locally and globally”, Mr van Doremaele said.

“We look forward to bringing the Rabobank team to Rockhampton next year – sharing our global knowledge of the beef sector and creating opportunities to network and learn throughout the week’s program.
