Announcing a new partnership with AustralianFarmers

WFI is proud to announce we are the newest partner of the AustralianFarmers online platform.

AustralianFarmers is a new online community powered by the National Farmers’ Federation (NFF), bringing together the latest news, weather information, discussions and campaigns.

NFF CEO Tony Mahar described the partnership with WFI as an important milestone for AustralianFarmers.

“WFI has a long history of partnering with farming organisations around the country, and as a market leader in agricultural insurance, thousands of farmers place their trust in WFI to protect their business in tough times.

“This heritage makes WFI an obvious partner to help us connect farmers, agribusiness and the broader community in an engaging online home.

WFI’s Executive General Manager - IAG Agribusiness, Andrew Beer, said WFI was excited by the opportunity to contribute to the AustralianFarmers community.

“AustralianFarmers is an important way to enhance the industry’s ability to share and communicate in the digital era.

“We see a strong outlook for agriculture in Australia, and it’s important that the industry be equipped to tell that story in a world where people in urban areas are increasingly insulated from life on the land.

“The better connected we are as an industry, the better equipped we’ll be to address challenges as they arise and take advantage of innovation”.

Under our new partnership with the NFF, WFI will help maintain and grow the AustralianFarmers online platform.

Who is the NFF?

The NFF is a national body representing farmers and, more broadly, agriculture across Australia. 

One of Australia’s foremost advocacy organisations, the NFF has established a strong reputation as a leader in the identification, development and achievement of agriculture policy outcomes. Collectively, there are 31 organisations that form the NFF and it’s 70,000 members, some of which are existing alliance partners of WFI, including the NSWFA, VFF and Agforce.
