NRI was formed in 2001, by the visionary owners of ten Independent Rural Retail operations.
The drive behind each business was an appetite for change. Corporates were taking over the Farm Input market. There was a need for a truly Independent group, without the cost associated with a wholesale structure.
Today the NRI group has more than 100 stores in every state and territory of Australia, providing Farm Inputs and Specialty advice to primary producers.
Importantly, we have established partnerships with the major supply companies because we present the most efficient route to market for their products and services. Through collaboration with our suppliers, NRI remains at the forefront of the latest technical advances in Agriculture.
Each of our stores has a unique service offering to suit their local producers’ needs. It is this intimate local knowledge that enables them to deliver the best production outcomes for their customers. Our shareholders also play an active role in their local communities through employment, community programs and sponsorships.
