In the primary sector the employees in this department will have to ensure that they do one of these processes listed above as its part of the primary process. An example of a business/organisation in the primary sector (produces its own products) would be westward fishing company because, they are given the resources and raw materials and then they will set out to go and catch the fish themselves this company is also a national company as it operates across the country.
