When there has been any sort of dispute between farmer selling corn, cattle or whatever product it may be to the next person in the chain. has RT assurance ever given proof that the farmer is right and the Mill or other outlet etc is wrong

And in any of these disputes has RT ever been contacted and thrown there weight behind the farmer to resolve things?

As an example we’ve had an odd load of grain not meet required moisture despite having a RT spec moisture meter check. I’ve sorted it direct with the grain buyer but should I have rung RT up and would defend me?

This work includes for example, export market access and promotional international trade event work, consumer marketing campaigns and market pricing and insight information.
