About ExoFlare

ExoFlare is Australia’s leading biosecurity solutions company. We are protecting the global food supply by making the world biosecure.

What we do

ExoFlare has developed the world’s first Biosecurity Threat Management Platform™ to proactively protect food supply to help ensure the 8 billion people on the planet can be fed.

We are building a new class of global infrastructure that is intelligent and adaptive to existing and emerging biosecurity threats across the Agriculture and Food value chain, resulting in sustainable protection where and when it’s needed most, also taking into account animal and environmental welfare.

The future of farming

The ExoFlare platform is being developed to integrate expert knowledge, sensing, genomics-based diagnostics and analytics to provide accelerated detection, response and recovery from biothreats.

The result is a new benchmark for the way businesses manage biosecurity risk and maximise asset value, revenues, market access and compliance in a rapidly evolving threat and regulatory environment.

ExoFlare is fast growing and provides biosecurity protection across the agrifood sector for intensive livestock industries including pork, poultry, eggs and feedlots, as well as broadacre livestock and cropping industries. ExoFlare is privately held and headquartered in Sydney, Australia.
