Innovation Group Workshop Unearths Diverse Ideas

Food & Fibre Gippsland's Nicola Watts facilitated a high-energy 1/2 day workshop last week at Latrobe Valley Authority, exploring opportunities for supporting Gippsland food and fibre producers connect more seamlessly with customers and markets via online platforms.

With representatives from industry, government, research and community present, there were plenty of diverse ideas around how online platforms could support a stronger regional food system that delivers benefits for business, the community and the planet.

We are looking forward to the next Innovation Group meeting and progressing this opportunity. A big thank you to everyone for their amazing contributions so far; your collaborative enthusiasm is inspiring!
