Family Businesses

Meridian Agriculture works with family businesses in rural and regional areas, as well as in metropolitan areas to help them identify their goals and achieve them.
Working with family businesses is complex because it involves family, business and organisational structural issues. How the three work together is vitally important if your family is going to be successful.
