Our expertise in terms of reviewing programmes, projects and business operations spans multiple sectors, including agribusiness, biosecurity and global development.

♦ Reviewing the project outline for a two-year agribusiness and private sector project in Afghanistan, for the Danish Embassy and FAO, including the project’s financial and economic sustainability, implementation strategy and synergy with other relevant
♦ Reviewing the progress and potential impacts of a collaboration between the Ministry for Primary Industries in New Zealand and private company New Zealand Merino that aims to drive change in the way New Zealand’s strong wool is produced, marketed and sold, for the benefit of the New Zealand economy.
♦ Reviewing the biosecurity code for the Australian pork industry on behalf of Australian Pork Ltd.
♦ Reviewing the progress and potential impacts of a collaboration between the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) in New Zealand and private company New Zealand Merino that aims to drive change in the way New Zealand’s strong wool is produced, marketed and sold, for the benefit of the New Zealand economy.
♦ Conducting an end-of-programme review of the Marbled Grass-Fed Beef Programme, another a collaboration between MPI in New Zealand and a private company, which ran in New Zealand from 2012 to 2019, with the aim of developing an alternative to beef produced from cattle housed in feedlots overseas for high value niche markets.
♦ Reviewing animal feed sources and feeding practices in New Zealand on behalf of the New Zealand Food Safety Authority.
♦ Evaluating the business model for a 400-head commercial dairy farm in Zambia – from the farm’s input structure to its production, processing, distribution and marketing, in order to provide recommendations on the next steps for the company (and its foreign investor) to overcome challenges in light of its sub-optimal performance.
♦ Conducting a major review of New Zealand’s national biosecurity surveillance programmes and making recommendations for their improvement.
