Cambridge Gulf Limited (CGLtd) came into being after four years of rigorous debate and analysis of a number of options to achieve structural reform of the Ord River District Co-operative Ltd (ORDC).

The agronomy business unit that primarily provided services to the Ord grower shareholders was segregated into the newly formed Ord River District Co-operative (ORDCO).

The other non-core co-operative business units remained with CGLtd.
