Agribusiness investment, performance review and due diligence research

RMCG provide independent reviews and due diligence research for agricultural investors and farm business managers.

Our investment assessment and due diligence process is customised depending on client requirements, but typically includes: site assessment, production systems, market assessment, revenue, cost of production, staff and skills, policy and decision making.

Independent reviews are useful to our clients as we provide thorough, no-nonsense reports that clearly outline the key profit drivers, barriers to success and key risks, along with mitigation recommendations. Our objective is to provide exceptional advice that will help our clients increase profitability.
