QFF are proud to announce our partnership with audit, tax, and advisory experts, BDO in Australia. This strategic partnership offers a unique opportunity for our members to utilise BDO’s extensive and diverse expertise in delivering ideas and advice that create value for the Food and Agribusiness sector.
The partnership is driven by a mutual interest in supporting the growth and development of the Food and Agribusiness sector in Queensland. BDO’s extensive knowledge and experience in audit, tax, and advisory coupled with their deep understanding and genuine interest in the agricultural sector creates a strong foundation for a genuinely meaningful partnership.
BDO’s National Leader, Food and Agribusiness, Peter Toll, said the decision to align the BDO brand with such a highly regarded organisation in QFF, was not a difficult one.
“We are thrilled to partner with an organisation that supports and advocates for the agricultural sector in Queensland, while engaging in issues of strategic importance to the productivity, sustainability and growth of the sector,” said Peter Toll.

By partnering with BDO, QFF can draw on the firm’s extensive resources and expertise to support its advocacy efforts. This exciting partnership and as the agricultural industry continues to evolve, partnerships like this are crucial for those looking to stay ahead of the curve.
QFF CEO, Jo Sheppard, said QFF were very pleased to have BDO join the Corporate Partners program.
