Nutrano restructures farm management to accommodate growth

In response to its recent growth and anticipated further acquisitions, leading Australian fresh produce company, Nutrano, has split the management of its farming operations geographically between North and South.

Existing Executive General Manager – Farming, Richard Byllaardt, will manage farming and pack-shed operations in the Southern region, which includes farms in the Sunraysia district.

Current non-executive director, Malcolm Frick, has been appointed Executive General Manager – Farming (Northern), to manage operations in the Bundaberg region in Queensland, and Katherine in the Northern Territory.

Nutrano Produce Group Managing Director and CEO, Steven Chaur, said the  restructure was an important step in the management of its expanding farming operations.

“As Nutrano becomes a world-class integrated fresh produce supply chain business it is important that we remain well-resourced to manage the growth and investment opportunities of our national farm fleet. Over the coming year, Nutrano anticipates completing additional farm acquisitions in core categories and making further capital investments in our farm operations in Sunraysia, Queensland and the Northern Territory. During 2018, Nutrano will also increase its emphasis on Soft Produce farming and marketing through the Barbera Farms relationship in Bundaberg, Queensland. Richard Byllaardt has done an outstanding job in bringing our Abbotsleigh and Seven Fields premium farming acquisitions together into Nutrano. He will now focus exclusively on driving the integration, capital development and leadership of our Sunraysia farming operations. “As Executive General Manager – Farming (Northern), Malcolm Frick will manage the Barbera Farms relationship and the further operational development of Abbotsleigh, Mareeba and Katherine,” Mr Chaur said.

Malcolm Frick brings to the Nutrano Executive Management Team a wealth of diverse agricultural management experience gained over 22 years, in senior commercial Agronomy roles, with John Deere, T-Systems Australia, and Crop Tech. Based in Brisbane, he will step down from the Nutrano Board when he commences the new role on 29 January 2018.
