WAFarmers is pleased to announce a new partnership with Rural Bank, which will see the organisations working together for the future of the WA agriculture sector.
WAFarmers President Tony York said this partnership is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen our relationship with one of Australia’s premier rural lending and banking institutions.
“Partnering with Rural Bank, given the alignment with their position statement of ‘Farmer Focused, Future Driven’, it is a natural fit for WAFarmers,” Mr York said.
“Many farming businesses utilise the services provided by Rural Bank so this is an opportunity for WAFarmers to strengthen our relationship.
“WAFarmers currently collaborates with Rural Bank on the Agriculture Category in the Seven News WA Young Achiever Awards. Working alongside Rural Bank will help us to continue working for a more viable, profitable and sustainable future for the agricultural industry.
“WAFarmers looks forward to working more closely with Rural Bank and to see what the partnership with Rural Bank will bring for our members and the larger agricultural sector in WA.”
Rural Bank’s Regional Manager Agribusiness (WA) Tim Batger added that Rural Bank is delighted to be further supporting WAFarmers.
“The WAFarmers’ aim of a more viable, profitable and sustainable future for the agricultural industry is in complete alignment with Rural Bank’s vision of a bright future for Australian agriculture,” Mr Batger said.
“By banking through the Bendigo Bank Community Bank® network, Rural Bank customers are making a difference to rural and regional communities across the state.”
“The team at Rural Bank is pleased to becoming more deeply involved with advocacy for agriculture in Western Australia, and helping more Western Australian farmers to grow.”
