Our Excellence in Agribusiness Awards has ignited a new enthusiam and great realisation of the depth, diversity and quality of produce in Gippsland, along with a very impressive collection of operational, analytical and academic professionals across the region. These people, our communities and our produce are three very big ingredients in what is great about Gippsland. We thank the volunteers who have worked hard to make the first year of the awards a success - with special mention to our judges.
Check out the recently renovated Cobb & Co Stables building in Sale. Lovingly restored and repurposed to present a unique venue for Gippsland events. We loved the title of being the first external event to be held at The Stables and congratulate Sarah, Joel, Rohan and their fantastic team on their incredible effort to have the venue ready for us - and then their exceptional service and attention to detail that brought it all together for us on the night.
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
