Chamber President, Peter Griffyn, was one of 80 people who attended last week’s highly successful Margaret River and Agricultural Summit held at the Margaret River Education Campus.
The Summit provided opportunity for producers, farmers and local businesses to consider new research and future threats and opportunities in the food sector at local, national and international levels.
Shire of Augusta Margaret River Chief Executive Officer Gary Evershed said the conference provided real outcomes with discussions around future business expansions and collaborations floated by a number of participants.
“I’m aware of a number of connections being made between attendees for the development of future business opportunities, which is a fantastic result.”
Deputy Shire President and food producer Cr Kylie Kennaugh said she was most impressed by the quality and experience of speakers who presented on a diverse range of food sector topics.
“So many doors opened and there are new opportunities awaiting – I am very excited.”
A feedback form will be circulated to participants in the coming weeks to gauge appetite for future food sector conferences or workshops.
