Beef Central, 07/10/2022

Well-known Australian agricultural analysts Matt Dalgleish and Andrew Whitelaw have launched an independent market analysis and commentary platform under the banner of episode3 (EP3).

EP3 will be offering independent market analysis and commentary, consulting and market advisory services.

Matt and Andrew have gained national recognition for their work as market analysts, most recently with Thomas Elder Markets (TEM) which they co-founded TEM with Elders in 2020.

After two years of successfully providing important agricultural market commentary and analysis with Elders, they are now taking a new step with the launch of their own independent entity,EP3.

In launching the platform Matt and Andrew said the need for independent and objective market analysis and data provision in agriculture is greater than ever.

“EP3 will continue to provide a service to the agricultural sector by offering analytical articles on to assist in understanding the market.

“EP3 will fund the free service through consulting and project services to the food and agribusiness sector.

“These consulting services include economic analysis, market education, policy development and risk management. The directors of EP3 have plans to grow the EP3 service to encapsulate new commodities and services in the coming year.”

EP3 will be represented in Canberra and Melbourne.

Industry leaders have shown support for the new EP3 service:

“Sheep Producers Australia has worked closely with TEM and valued the support they have given to sheep producers, the live export industry, and the broader agriculture sector by providing independent market analysis and data. The model of TEM showed the drive and passion both Matt and Andrew have to support the industry and I look forward to working with them both under their new venture of EP3.” – Bonnie Skinner, CEO Sheep Producers Australia

“The insights provided by Andrew and Matt have been invaluable in assisting GrainGrowers to develop evidence-based policy, and we wish the new EP3 venture all the best in the future.” – Dave McKeon, CEO Grain Growers

“In the past two years TEM has contributed a huge amount of value and insights to Elders and Agribusiness Australia. We support the further development of market analysis for agriculture through EP3.” – Mark Allison, MD & CEO Elders and President of Agribusiness Australia
