Rabih Moughelby, International Sales Manager, The Big Olive, presents to business migrants
It can be difficult for business migrants to research and make contact with local businesses when they first arrive in South Australia, especially those from non English speaking countries. Business SA’s Migration for Business Growth program aims to connect business migrants with export ready businesses in a relevant and productive way – and with a bit of fun thrown in if possible.
In November Business SA partnered with The Big Olive to host a bus tour of 60 business migrants to The Big Olive processing plant and showroom at Tailem Bend.
Business migrants toured the factory to see how the company processes and packs the oil produced from approximately 120,000 trees at their Coonalpyn olive grove. With the assistance of a mandarin interpreter Rabih Moughelbay, International Sales Manager, gave a presentation on olive oil products and export opportunities with a focus on the Chinese market.
After a complimentary lunch visitors sampled Big Olive products including olive tapenades, olive oil, export brand wines and olive based health and beauty products.
“Our association with Business SA and the Migration for Business Growth program has led to many productive leads for the business and direct sales into China”, say Rabih Moughelbay.
“Business migrants already have a proven business track record back in their country of origin and we have found their networks and distribution channels have opened up market sectors we would not otherwise have had access to.”
Migration for Business Growth is a joint initiative between Business SA, and the South Australian government through Immigration SA. The program creates an effective link between SA businesses and newly arrived business migrants. It helps facilitate investment and new enterprise establishment, and gives training and support to business migrants so they understand and are prepared to undertake business in the state.
