A Bell-based farming business has been selected to take part in the 2022 Shell QGC Emerging Exporters Program.

Bunya Range Lamb will join seven other businesses – AgKnowledge Australia, Grove Shorthorns, Laffy Family Farms, Quality Pasturefed Beef, Rosevale Cattle Company, Smarter Nutrition and Top Country – in the program, which will be delivered by TSBE’s Food Leaders Australia.

This is the fifth year the Emerging Exporters Program has been run.

TSBE spokesperson Justin Heaven said this year’s cohort of businesses was of exceptional quality, and he was looking forward to providing them with exciting opportunities.

“We know there’s a growing demand for trusted, clean and green food in Asia, and significant investment in infrastructure right on our doorstep,” Mr Heaven said.

“I’m optimistic this year’s producers will grow into export markets.”

The tailored program includes workshops and one-on-one support providing participants with the tools and capabilities to become competent, sustainable exporters who can manage risk and make informed decisions before embarking on their export journey.

Bunya Range Lamb founders Shane and Nancy Nixon said they were looking forward to sharing their ethically and sustainably produced lamb with the world.

“The Shell QGC Emerging Exporters Program will enable us to network with other emerging producers while exploring both domestic and international market trends under the guidance of industry professionals,” Ms Nixon said.
