Even in the face of the current harsh economic climate, we have kept our reputation as an organization that takes pride being responsible and creating shared values through innovation and diversity. Engaging in socially responsible activities will further drive our sustainability journey in which long-term success in actualized.
Our policy is to continually set high standards of safety at workplace; improve the working conditions, health, and wellness of our employees, the environment, our host communities and other stakeholders which we know will positively impact our business performance in a sustainable manner.
This policy is hinged on the following Corporate Social Responsibility pillars:

Allied Mills Queensland has invested more than $1 billion over the past ten years to execute its core business strategy to aid the agricultural sector. This investment has been made primarily in Agriculture and Infrastructure.
Volatile commodity prices arising from unpredictable changes in global supply and demand, exchange rate fluctuations and punitive tariffs and import barriers, has made our reliance on imported raw materials risky, expensive and unsustainable. The need to create value further back in the supply chain and reduce dependence on imported raw material has been identified as a strategic imperative for our Group in the years ahead. The investment of the next $1 billion will, therefore, focus on a strategy of backward integration to maintain growth and sustained profitability.
Raw materials will be produced locally wherever possible to ensure that good quality fair value products are developed through the full supply chain from growing to final consumer consumption – from farm to fork.
