Hands Family Office

The Hands Family Office invests on behalf of the Hands family and has a long and successful track record of diverse investments, including forestry, renewables, real estate and hospitality. 

The strategic rationale underlying the acquisition of CPC was driven by a number of global macroeconomic themes, in particular: global population growth; a shift in Asian diet towards higher protein consumption; and limited supply of productive land. CPC has significant land and water development opportunities.

Commenting on the purchase of CPC, Guy Hands said “CPC is a high-quality, well-run business with a strong position in a large and growing industry and proximity to major beef-consuming markets. Even in Australia, where beef-industry standards are among the highest in the world, CPC stands apart for its commitment to animal welfare, environmental responsibility, and innovation for productivity. I have tremendous confidence in the Australian agricultural sector and am very excited about the future of CPC and proud to be partnering with its management team.”
