    Agribusiness diagnostic and planning program.

Agribusiness Accelerator

When it comes to managing your agribusiness there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Achieving your goals, whatever they may be, requires a strong understanding of where your business is today and where you want it to be.

To help you plan a path to success, BDO’s Food & Agribusiness experts, in partnership with Agrihive have designed the Agribusiness Accelerator to give you a clear vision of your business today, and develop and implement a tailored plan for the future.

Partnering with experts in the industry

Agrihive is dedicated to empowering food farming and agribusinesses with the ability to truly understand their financial position. Through easy to understand financial visualisation, Agrihive allows farmers to identify their unique needs and assess their current operations in line with their goals. The tool has received strong industry support, with existing data relationships with the likes of Meat & Livestock Australia, Microsoft Excel, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Google Maps.  

How it works

BDO and Agrihive’s Agribusiness Accelerator takes your family through an intensive diagnostic and planning program. We work directly with you and your family to identify where the business is now, where you want it to be, and how you can get there. Our joint team works with you every step of the way, giving you regular access to food & agribusiness experts when you need it most.
