Excellence Awards Entry Deadline Extended and Gala Presentation Date changed

   Thursday 30th April, 2020

Just like many events in Australia and around the world, the Excellence in Agribusiness Awards program has had to pivot to adapt to the conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new deadline for entries is Thursday June 25 and the new scheduled date for the Gala presentation event is Friday November 20.

The 2019 Excellence in Agribusiness Awards were a great success and the program has been extended this year to include new categories and new sponsors, all of them passionate about recognising and rewarding food and fibre businesses across Gippsland.

The broad Awards program crosses all food and fibre sectors to recognise farm businesses (pre and post farmgate) that have demonstrated innovation/excellence and business practices that maximise productivity and profitability – shaping the future of Gippsland agribusiness.

The Awards will be critiqued by an independent high calibre judging panel comprising of business leaders who have a broad understanding of food & fibre and business management.

The Awards program has created a framework to tell our Gippsland story, position our agribusinesses as leaders in Australia and beyond and encouraged important dialogue to improve collaboration within the sector.
