When Award progams culminate in their gala event, it's all over in a few hours, but there's a lot of work over the months leading up to it that goes into making every element of that presentation work, and we would like to acknowledge the time and effort of a few key people involved in our 2019 Excellence in Agribusiness Awards.

Our GippyAG Project is linking Gippsland schools with our local food & fibre industries, with some fantastic free Professional Development Days that cover a range of topics that help teachers incorporate food and fibre concepts into the teaching practices and classrooms. We're doing them in four locations across Gippsland, and Bairnsdale is the first one NEXT FRIDAY. It's free to participate, but registrations are essential!

Whilst we've covered some content in the first day of the Workforce Planning Masterclass - there is still massive value for Food & Fibre businesses to attend the second day where facilitator can give them guidance and structure on how to assess their workforce needs and make use of data to plan for future capacity building...

Who doesn''t love a good wine lunch - and one of our members Ensay Winery has got a fabulous Duck and Dessert lunch on August 25.

The EU Centre at RMIT is inviting Gippslanders to a round table discussion on 'The EU Experience on Geographical Indications: What benefits for local development in Gippsland?' The purpose of the roundtable is to examine the increasing importance of place (region) in signifying quality in international trade. The European Union is a strong advocate of GIs being used to promote specific places and their products. The discussion will examine how the use of geographical indications for a range of products might enhance Gippsland’s competitiveness and promote local development.
