Under the agreement, Golden Koala will supply its Golden Koala Premium Range Infant Formulas to AustAgri for sale in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, as well as via e-commerce platforms.

With Golden Koala Group Pty Ltd as supplier, and AustAgri (AA) as customer, the key terms of the agreement are as follows;

The Term: five years commencing 90 days after Golden Koala notifies AA that it has received approval for the products from the China Food and Drug Administration.

Exclusivity and territories: AA has been granted the exclusive right to distribute and sell the products in mainland China. It has the non-exclusive right to distribute and sell the products in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

Products: the products are 900g tins of Golden Koala Premium Range Infant Formulas.

Minimum purchase quantities: AA must order a minimum amount of 900g tins annually in each of the five years of the agreement. The total revenue to be received by Golden Koala over five years from sales of minimum quantities will be approximately $98 million.

Guaranteed deposit: AA must pay Golden Koala A$1 million as a guaranteed deposit in two instalments. The first instalment is $500,000 to be paid within seven business days of signing the agreement and $500,000 within seven business days of being notified that CFDA approval has been granted for all products.

Payment terms: 50% is payable by AA at the time of order with the balance payable upon Golden Koala notifying AA that the products are ready for production.
