Saving money on international payments & foreign exchange

Any business that is accessing international markets for their leather, hides or splits will know there will always be another market to manage; the foreign exchange market. For example, an Italian business buying hides from the US will not only have to consider the market price of hides but also the market price of the dollar relative to the euro.

Sustainable production

Sustainable farming: Summer in Australia: droughts, bush fires and record heat waves and floods. Farmers have a hard life and many are leaving the land because they can no longer make a living. My parents bought a rundown dairy farm when I was eight so that the family could enjoy working holidays near the sea. Ever since, I have enjoyed being a part-time farmer but I am glad we do not have to make a living from it.
