  5. Review your finances
  6. Be wary of tax refund scams
  7. Review your business and marketing plans
  8. Review your business structure
  9. Check your insurances

Values, Values, Values!

We begin with ASKAFOODTECH™ and ORB Medical, for our Technology View. ASKAFOODTECH™ provides top-quality food technology consulting for producers with ambition.

Our Construction View features Heartwood Timber Floors & Shutters (Heartwood), NZ Corrosion Services, and Savcor Products Australia (SPA). Heartwood has been Australian owned and operated for over a decade, providing a broad range of timber flooring and supplementary products to clients in repairs, renovations, new homes, and commercial construction.

An agile team of five, SPA are proud of their multicultural group and cherish the diverse perspectives and experiences presented by staff every day as they supply corrosion and cathodic protection products to the Australian market.

Back In Motion takes up our focus on Health and Hospitals for June. Since their establishment in 1999, they have grown into one of Australia and New Zealand’s most comprehensive networks of physiotherapy practices. With their proprietary clinical approach, Results4Life, Back In Motion guide clients on a journey towards optimal health, rather than simply providing a ‘quick fix’ to a current symptomatic problem.

Food and Beverage View businesses for this issue include the Australian Meat Industry Council (AMIC), V&V Walsh, and Cannings. AMIC is Australia’s peak industry body representing meat retailers, processors, and smallgoods manufacturers across the country. The organisation exists to help their members achieve and maintain profitability, efficiency, and sustainability in the face of dynamic, everchanging markets. V&V Walsh have used hard work, experience, and determination since their founding in 1957 to evolve into today’s leading lamb and beef producer for all of Western Australia. Cannings were set up in 2010 to provide the discerning Melbournian with free range, high welfare meats from proudly Australian suppliers. Their ethos is ‘It’s Free Range or Nothing!’.

That’s it from us for June. Be well, stay safe, and as always… Enjoy the Read!
