Longevity, Expertise, Global Reach.
Heritage: the Clarke family have been a constant in Australia’s agriculture sector since 1829. In addition to farming quality beef the family has diversified into commerce, banking, and philanthropy at different times. In 2020 the family has moved into an acquisition and growth phase with the investment in Interagri and Tabro (see below) and with plans for additional high-quality agricultural acquisitions to come.
The MMG group (MMG 1829 Holdings Pty Ltd) is a leading Australian-based agricultural, vertical supply chain group made up of leading companies including:
- InterAgri, a leading global merchant of beef, veal, lamb, mutton, goat, pork, offal, dairy and fine wines
- Mandeville Pty Ltd (Tabro abattoir in Wonthaggi)
- The Tim Clarke family beef assets represented by the Mandeville Meat Group Pty Ltd.
The broader group has and is acquiring properties in Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, and the Northern Territory. The acquisitions in the north of Australia will provide a northern cattle supply chain linking to one of the world’s leading and diversified agriculture markets.
The Tabro and InterAgri purchases are the first step in a list of strategic acquisitions to create a supply chain that addresses key challenges such as food security, sustainability with a strong focus on provenance to feed the growing demands of increasingly sophisticated consumers. Our vertical supply chain targets domestic and international consumers via retail, food service and online markets, including world class manufacturers.
The MMG vision is shared by our investors and financiers who are based in Australia, Europe and America.
MMG Company Leaders:
The future is prosperous but only because we are adapting to the changing climate and market needs:
What we do:
We manage a global supply chain for quality agricultural products originating from some of Australia’s most prominent properties.
There are four platforms to our vertically integrated business: agricultural trading; processing; supply chain maximisation; and advice.
We breed, grow, package, distribute, and export the highest quality beef, veal, lamb, mutton, goat, pork, offal, dairy and fine wines to local and international markets.
There are many agricultural companies in Australia so what makes us different?
What you can expect of us:
We have been in business here since 1829. We understand the cycles inherent in agriculture and have managed to adapt to economic pressures, a more competitive trade environment and changing customer needs.
Six generations of farming has taught us that the future of agriculture must be sustainable farming, caring deeply for our animals and staff and acknowledging the impact of climate change and adapting to it by committing to being carbon neutral (and ultimately carbon negative).
This will be achieved by the extensive production of renewable energy from our farming and processing activities, reducing our inputs by focusing on our carbon footprint.
We also have a responsibility to mitigate our climate impact. This will be achieved in many ways including through grazing and land management practices that increase the natural CO2 sequestration in soils in grass and range lands.
The change in climate offers enormous opportunities including creating sustainable building products such as via our industrial hemp production which will produce ethanol as a green fuel and fibre for use in cement and other building products for a sustainable housing industry.
Over many years, our ability to identify, evaluate and forge strong relationships with trusted supply partners has ensured we deliver consistent quality and specialised product offerings.
we know our agricultural products intimately, but we also explore and develop tailored procurement strategies and solutions that provide long-term value.
We are confident that our sustainable approach to meat production will ensure that Australia’s proud heritage of consuming quality meat products will continue in the face of dubious claims to the contrary, self-serving rhetoric from the plant-based food sector and consumer fads. And importantly that our approach will continue to satisfy the specific demands of key global markets.
We will proudly advocate for Australia’s meat industry and our agriculture sector more generally. We will stand alongside all those who are committed to sustainable agriculture and a meat industry focused on the future.
