• Export opportunity, market transparency

  • What makes AFC different?

    Why AFC

    AFC is in discussion with governments and companies across Asia to establish direct links to your farm gate. These entities see huge benefits in sourcing Australian produce, famous for its food safety and high quality, to help satisfy booming demand. They want to know exactly where the meat, fruit, vegetables and dairy they are importing have come from, and AFC’s structure means we can keep the grower-consumer link tight.

    Finance, insurance alternatives

    Our increasingly global environment means more to Australian farmers than increased opportunities for agricultural export to Asia. It also means sovereign lenders outside Australia are prepared to consider extending finance to you at rates and on terms that are more attractive and accessible than those being offered by Australian banks. AFC is in contact with sovereign lenders who are keen to do business with Australian producers and can put you in touch with some borrowing alternatives if you are looking for a change in your financing arrangements. Bringing the availability of gold-backed lending and securing your business future without the threat of the big four banks.

    Australian AG Group

    Building a market force together.

    Australian Ag Group has teamed up with AFC.

     

    "The benefits of the no-fuss financing and working with a company that really does have your best intentions at heart to build your enterprise without the threat of being hunted down when things like the environment and markets may not be in your favor all the time is priceless."  

     

    Companies like AFC, we believe, will show the Australian producers how much strength they really have with collaboration in numbers and working together.

     

    Food is KING in anyone's language.

     

     

  • Matthew Fuge

    Founder

    Matthew was raised on the family farm at Forbes in central New South Wales, where he learnt to fly in the family’s Cessna 150, and developed his love of the land. Choosing to pursue a career in aviation, Matthew has clocked up 22 years as an airline pilot. While he has lived in Hong Kong since 2004, his heart has never left Australian agriculture. Today he is a part-owner of the family farm at Forbes, which continues the Fuge tradition of growing crops like wheat and barley, and running sheep and cattle. Living in Asia has shown Matthew the tremendous opportunities its economy offers Australia, a renowned producer of high-quality and safe food. Matthew has co-founded AFC because he believes Australian growers deserve better rewards for their commitment to agriculture, and improved transparency when it comes to export pricing.

    Proximity to Asia shortens transport

     

    times, allowing Australia to deliver
    fresher, more attractive fruit and
    vegetables to these markets by sea
    and air, often supplying in counter-
    seasonal months and in times of short
    supply. Fresh produce can be packed
    and airfreighted to Asian markets
    within 48-60 hours from harvest.
    Produce sent by sea in refrigerated
    containers can be in Asian markets
    within 12-20 days of harvest.

     

    Traceability and quality assurance
    systems are compulsory in all export

     

     

    packing houses. Refrigerated storage
    and trucking to port are used in all
    production regions. Modern and
    efficient port facilities provide prompt
    delivery of consignments to export
    destinations.
