Eatmore & Green Pty. Ltd (Australia) is a successful medium sized marketing consultancy for Australian agricultural products and Australian sourced organic, natural beauty/cosmetic/baby and spa products.

It  represents many  small to medium producers of Meat processors (principally beef and lamb and recently kangaroo) and Stone Fruit growers. It was started in 1990 by 2 partners - Tom Eatmore and Bill Green with strong agricultural product marketing experience in the Australian marketplace and a recently developed interest in organic natural "green  beauty/cosmetic products, which are now handled by Bill's daughter Suzy Green - a graduate in International Business. At this stage the products they handle are largely marketed to the Australian market with a small export presence in Japan.

They are  looking at expanding into new overseas markets that present opportunities, notably the "Emerging economies" of Asia, Latin America and Africa or some potential Eastern European markets.

Eatmore and Green believe that there are opportunities in organic meats/hormone free/free range etc along with organic Stone Fruits and Apples, and the new  marketing mix products

Eatmore and Green  market their ranges under the following labels.

  • Sunny Valley Meats organic and non-organic
  • Orchard Fresh Stone Fruits and Apples - organic and non-organic
  • Bilgarra Rainforest natural beauty/spa products for adults
  • Baby Gaa Gaa -  range of natural  massage and cleansing products.

The executives believe that trends and changes in global economies represent new opportunities for the company and their stakeholders/suppliers in overseas markets - principally the "so-called" Emerging Economies. They need to research these markets , identify potential target markets and understand consumer behavior with different cultural contexts and elements in most of these emerging markets.
