Rural Liquid Fertilisers Asia

We are an Australian-registered Company that operates in China and parts of Asia.

Our business is the China-based manufacture, packaging and distribution of Australian-developed RLF Specialty Liquid Fertiliser products for the Asia marketplace.

The Company operates predominately in China, but has the rights to operate in 19 other countries in the greater Asia region, with small scale sales already occurring in some of these countries.

The size of the market in which the Company can distribute its products represents approximately 28.6% of global crop production (based on 2017 data), and current statistical trends indicate upward pressure and demand for agricultural products as the emerging middle class across the Asia-Pacific region increases.

Welcome to our Website, where we have documented our operations and business structure, together with our history and plans for future growth.

History and Future Aims

Asia’s Agricultural Growth

With over 10-years of experience in the China market, Rural Liquid Fertilisers Asia (RLF Asia) is committed to growing its business across many more Asian countries and markets. Logistically we are well placed to service and supply these new markets, and it is with a sense of optimism and determination that we will endeavour to establish our presence. RLF Asia has been created to help us to achieve that purpose.

Our aim is to look positively at Every Opportunity to form Partnerships that will give Customers Access to the Widest range possible of RLF Specialty Fertilisers.

Vision and Values

At RLF Asia we are dedicated to building a vibrant and successful global network, that places the interests of our customers first as they strive to bring food supply and security to their part of
the globe.

This sense of purpose is commonly shared by all our Team Members.

Our aim is to deliver the values of ‘Customer First’, Professionalism, Resourcefulness, Integrity, Innovation & Sustainability and Enthusiasm for the benefit of farmers and growers across the Asia Region.

Australia’s First

In 2007 RLF became the first Australian Specialty Fertiliser Company to set-up in China and successfully establish an integrated manufacture, sales and distribution business by selling directly into the China market.

Our aim is to secure our position as the No.1 Australian Specialty Fertiliser Company across the Asia Region.

Product Quality and Excellence

RLF Asia operates a Quality Assured facility, developed and expanded over the years since its inception as the demand for increased volumes grew to supply its expanding markets.

Our aim is to provide this same level of Product Quality and Excellence across the Asia Region.

Why the Asia Market

Regional Summary

The Asia region:

  • is a dominant component of the global food chain, accounting for 19% of total global food and agriculture exports and 31% of total food and agriculture imports.
  • has a large and growing population, coupled with rising incomes and a burgeoning middle class which will continue to drive demand for food and agricultural commodities
    and resources.
  • is at risk of not producing enough food to support itself. It has limited arable land, inadequate water, poor resource management, low farm yield and environmental impact factors such as soil degradation and aging, inadequate infrastructure. These all limit food production, so production efficiency is needed.
  • needs its agribusiness and food and agriculture companies to grow in size and scope to meet the increasing demand. It is likely they will position themselves to respond to national priorities and policies in this regard.
