Wellard to sponsor PGA rural achievement

25 August 2015

Two of Western Australia’s regional icons have come together to support rural achievement at this year’s Pastoralists and Grazier’s Association (PGA) Annual Convention.

Leading agribusiness, Wellard, has become the official sponsor of the PGA Rural Achievement Award, the most prestigious and highest awards given to members of Western Australia’s leading farming organisation.

The winner of the 2015 PGA Rural Achievement Award will be announced at the PGA Gala Dinner, following the PGA 2015 Annual Convention on September 17 at Crown Perth.

PGA President Tony Seabrook said he was delighted to welcome the live- exporter, ship owner and sheep and lamb processor as a major sponsor.

“The PGA has always had a strong relationship with Wellard in supporting and promoting not only the live export industry, but regional industry as well,” Mr Seabrook said.

“Both of our organisations enjoy a proud record of service to WA’s regional and rural industries, and, most importantly, in improving the bottom lines of farming businesses.”

Wellard CEO Mauro Balzarini said the new sponsorship continued the longstanding working partnership between Wellard Group and the PGA on livestock exports.

“We have always enjoyed our positive and beneficial relationship with the PGA, and believe that as Western Australia’s leading agribusiness, it is only fitting that we sponsor this award which recognises the outstanding contributions made to regional industry by primary producers,” Mr Balzarini said.
