About the Collaboration

OBE Organic is proud to be Australia’s oldest and most trusted organic beef marketing company, founded in the pure heart of Australia. Our business was founded in the 1990s by a group of pastoralists who were passionate about our nation’s unique Channel Country.

We’re excited to launch a new collaboration with the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section), a not-for-profit organisation which delivers a broad range of essential healthcare services to rural and remote communities, including general practice, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, child and family health, social and emotional wellbeing, women’s health and health promotion.

In Queensland, the RFDS provides excellence in, and access to primary health care and aeromedical services across the state. Their emergency retrieval service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, delivering more than 12,500 patient transfers each year.
