Helping Australian businesses to grow
The Graham Group (the Group) is a multi-generational South Australian farming family headed by Mark and Caroline Graham.
Originally focused on grain production, the business has diversified and now encompasses Watervalley Farms, a broad acre cropping business in the Yorke Peninsula, and Regional Skills Training (RST), a registered training organisation providing agronomic, management and compliance training to farmers in South Australia. RST has plans to expand to the eastern States in the coming year.
Caroline Graham and daughter Katy Landt have also launched a startup technology business, Safe Ag Systems, providing software that enables farming enterprises across Australia to manage their legislative obligations and incorporate workplace health and safety requirements into their operations.
Almost 2,000 Australian farmers are now using the software and, pending a successful capital raising, the Group plans to take its software to overseas markets.
As the Group’s business has diversified they have benefited from their long-term relationship with ANZ.
“ANZ has a genuine understanding of all aspects of our business,’ Mark Graham said. “They have provided flexible and timely options and have always supported the Group as we have expanded. This relationship will continue to grow as our plans for the future are implemented.”
At ANZ, we are proud of the relationship we share with the Graham family. They have strong ties to their local community and are making a positive impact to agribusiness in Australia.
Agribusiness is an important part of ANZ’s history, and banking customers like the Graham family aligns with our commitment to help Australian businesses grow.
