Paul Eastwood shares his experiences of his recent times with clients in Australia…
Australia is the sixth largest country in the world by area and food exports contribute over $24 billion to the economy each year.
Since April this year the Coriolis team have spent over 300 hours on Airplanes, and some are well tuned up on the latest films, TV boxsets and that the lifts in Heathrow are far quicker than the escalators!
Global expansion usually starts closer to home, however Coriolis noticed a market opportunity whilst completing a project for Weston Milling (part of ABF) and decided to capitalise.
“Australia is an interesting proposition for the food chain, its sparse population yet urban focused living offers a unique set of parameters and the demands of the population expect the standards offered in the UK. Under pinned by Woolworths and Co-op who also go by there local code names Tesco and Asda driving the demand for quality and price”
All of these are challenges that excite Coriolis and the team, to meet the growing needs we have established a business entity known as Coriolis Consulting and will be based out of our new office in Sydney. Using a blend of our UK team and new local recruits we will be bringing our knowledge and passion for best in class standards to the Australian market place.
The team has grown to 6 employees from April this year and we are continue to recruit individuals to join our global revolution.
“Of course it is difficult with a 10hr time difference and a 23hr flight, but we have developed at induction programme that see’s our Australian talent travel to the UK for training, an online portal for knowledge sharing and the relocation of some of the UK team to under pinned our ways of working and passion for what we do”.
With a vision to employee 20 people by the end of 2016, things will certainly be hotting up over the next 6 months and we look forwards to bringing you the updates. Alternatively follow @Coriolis and our Business Director @Easty_Coriolis on twitter for tweets from the sunny side!
