Letter from our CEO, Greg Hunt

Let's keep working together

For more than 100 years, we’ve been working to help farmers get more from their land. Right now, global communities are adjusting to the impacts of COVID-19 and facing challenges we’ve never faced before. While the agricultural industry is used to dealing with external shocks, our current experience goes well beyond business as usual, and it’s a time of stress and uncertainty.

We all have a role to play to overcoming this crisis. At Nufarm, our main job is to support farmers who are doing everything they can to keep food on tables. While this is our core business, there has never been a time when the work we do has been more critical.

We take our responsibility to help limit the spread of the virus seriously and we have taken extensive measures to safeguard our people and production. Our teams have adapted quickly and found new ways of working to keep our operations running and continue to get product to customers. From our supply and manufacturing teams to our sales and support teams who remain in close contact with our customers and partners, I couldn’t be more proud of the efforts of our teams across the globe.

I want to assure all our customers that we are doing everything we can to support your business and honor our commitments during this challenging period. To our suppliers and partners, thank you for your efforts to find constructive solutions to unforeseen circumstances during this extraordinary situation. We appreciate your dedication. 

It is important that we continue to work together across our industry to ensure farmers can continue to produce the food we need, and to secure the employment of our people and help limit the financial impact we are seeing globally. 

Thank you to all for your ongoing support.

Greg
