principles of international strategy on Biosata Organics Pty Ltd


Assessment Description
The purpose of this individual assignment is to apply the principles of international strategy to an
Australian firm.

Biosata Organics Pty Ltd is an Australian honey production firm based in Mount Kuring-gai in Sydney
( The firm produces organic honey for both domestic use and export. This
assignment requires you to read about the firm using its websites and other news sources, and also read
about the honey industry and Australian honey exports. Based on that research, you will be required to
develop an international risk assessment for the firm relating to the export of its products. You can
identify risks for a specific country or region, or generic risks. You will summarise these risks in a
PowerPoint slide set presented to the owner of the firm, Andrey Zubko and the board of directors.

The international risk assessment needs to include:
1. Risks to Biosata of exporting its honey.
2. Levels of risks (using high, medium or low risk ratings).
3. Recommend mitigation methods for each risk.
4. The impact of environmental factors in Australia and in the destination country on Biosata’s
5. Final conclusions on whether the risk and the reward are balanced such that the firm should export
its honey.
You are required to do this in 15 PowerPoint slides (not including cover sheet and references), converted
to PDF and uploaded to the assignment submission link.
The assessment does not require you to present your findings in class, but merely upload your
submission to the assessment link.
