Macleay Valley Food Bowl Agribusiness Investment Guide

Kempsey Shire Council and NSW Department of Primary Industries

RMCG was engaged by Kempsey Shire Council and the NSW Department of Primary Industries to prepare the Macleay Valley Bowl Agribusiness Investment Guide. The guide highlights agribusiness opportunities within the region to potential investors. The development of the guide was supported by a review of the region’s natural resources, including land capability, water availability, soils and climate. Suitable enterprises were also assessed, providing an overview of industry outlooks, markets, and key enterprise considerations.

The guide is now available online, view it here
