Biosecurity tops business priority list again

Biosecurity has retained the number one ranking in KPMG’s annual Agribusiness Agenda priorities survey for the ninth consecutive year.

KPMG’s Head of Agribusiness, Ian Proudfoot said primary sector leaders had input into the report and noted they want to see higher priority placed on collaboration and cost-sharing to proactively manage biosecurity risk through the Government Industry Agreement (GIA) structure, indicating leaders are willing to invest their time in enhancing collaborative models that are working effectively.

Leaders also commented that biosecurity is an issue that should be a priority on the risk register of every organisation, yet most were prepared to discount the risk until they found themselves at the centre of an incursion.

“M Bovis has demonstrated how quickly an incursion can move from being a national, governmental issue to a localised and personal issue for those impacted, which highlights how important it is that every organisation has developed risk management plans for biosecurity,” noted KPMG.
