Atlanta, Georgia, US: Agro Merchants has bought Brisbane-based Doboy Cold Stores.
Doboy, a family owned firm, operates two sites near the Port of Brisbane and maintains a diverse product mix that includes meats, seafood, fruit, nuts and bakery items.
David O’Brien, managing director, Doboy will continue in his current role with Agro Merchants.
The Doboy acquisition continues Agro’s global growth strategy and represents an important entry into the Asia Pacific region. Brisbane is Australia’s largest export port of processed meat products, capturing approximately 60% of all processed beef shipments. It also represents an important geographic point in the region, as the largest competing ports in Sydney and Townsville are more than 500 miles away.
