"There are so many different ideas and ways to approach growing the world's best beef."

Mr Angus said Beef Australia is setting the pace when it comes to inviting and encouraging innovators to present their next big idea.

"I am very excited about this concept, and the opportunity to find our next groundbreaking agricultural entrepreneur whose cutting-edge approach can help shape the landscape of beef."

Beef Australia is seeking seemingly complex business models or concepts, services or products that are explained within three minutes with clarity and credibility by entrepreneurs and business owners who have industry experience and or knowledge and are passionate about the opportunities their business will create.
