A delicious feast awaits at tonight's Excellence in Agribusiness Gala Dinner where our guests will be treated to a wonderful selection of Gippsland's best produce, curated by the talented team from Albert & Co Coffee Food Catering.
Close to 200 people from all over Gippsland and beyond joined together for a night of celebration on Friday night in Sale to reward and recognise those who are shaping the future of Gippsland’s food and fibre sector.

Each week we will bring you a new chapter of a virtual book that we're calling Meet the Member - we know, it's original... but we're keeping it simple ! Our goal being to tell you more about what our members do, what their businesses is all about, what they stand for and why they decided to become a member of Food & Fibre Gippsland. The content will be as diverse as the members, some weeks it might be a long article that's great to sit down and enjoy with a cup of tea, other weeks, we might bring you a 5 minute video that gives you a visual insight. Whatever it is, we aim to make it informative, engaging and collaborative - three very important things as we strive to help everyone in the food and fibre sector get to know one another a little better and understand each other a little more. It's all about telling the story, so here goes with Chapter 1 - Noweyung - Turning Disabilities into Differentabilities
This Friday night is the Excellence in Agribusiness Awards Gala Dinner where we will recognise, reward and celebrate collaboration and innovation in the achievements of a diverse range of food and fibre businesses across the region. There are nine categories, which culminates in the presentation of the 2019 Gippsland Agribusiness of the Year, the winner of which will be awarded a scholarship to attend KPMG's Agri-Food Tech Traction Tour.
There are free teacher professional development days being delivered by Food & Fibre Gippsland and CQUniversity Australia across four locations throughout Gippsland. It's a fantastic opportunity for teachers to increase their capacity to incorporate food and fibre concepts into their teaching practice and classrooms
When Dr Amy Cosby asked me if I'd be interested in being a mentor in the 2019 BrainSTEM Challenge, I didn't hesitate. For me, being part of programs like this is not only a way to share my communications knowledge and experience to help the future generation, it's also a wonderful opportunity to see problems, challenges and issues through different eyes. If today's enthusiasm is anything to go by, I am super excited about the next 12 weeks !
