About the Collaboration

OBE Organic began in the nineties as the first and only premium meat exporter that was 100% dedicated to the production of organic beef in Australia. Formed by a group of far-sighted pastoral families, we had a vision to support farmers who operate in the pure heart of Australia, while supplying the world’s best organic beef to restaurants & retailers around the world. We have matured into a business to help people lead better, healthier lives. We are on a journey of collaboration, inside and outside our value chain.

In June 2023, we hosted Ms Ruth Faragher for work experience in our headquarters in Brisbane. As a young adult with Down Syndrome, Ruth is on a mission to enjoy her life. During her time with OBE Organic, Ruth joined our Managing Director, Dalene Wray for a series of meetings with our customers both in Australia and offshore (virtually). Ruth has travelled the world with her Mum, speaking at Conferences about her experience with Down Syndrome. For Ruth, it’s not just people with Down Syndrome, where inclusion matters. It’s about including everyone, all the time. ?

During our collaboration with Ruth, we will be introducing you to some of our customers in Brisbane, Australia & will be asking you lots of questions about beef. As an independent woman who loves her beef, Ruth is as interested as you are, to know more about you, our customer.
