BFVG was established in 1948 to represent horticulture growers in the Bundaberg district on issues critical to their overall success. As a regional Horticulture Industry representative organisation, BFVG has evolved to become a central industry contact point for our local membership base.
BFVG is a non-trading, not-for-profit, grower-based cooperative comprising a membership base of horticulture growers and industry service businesses in the Bundaberg, Gympie and Gayndah regions.
The Bundaberg region alone is one of the largest Production Horticulture regions in Australia growing a diverse range of healthy nutritious fruits, vegetables, nuts and herbs. This region is estimated to have an annual farm gate value of more than $500 million, injects over $1 billion into the local economy and plays an integral role in the nation’s food security.
Since 2004, the Bundaberg region’s farm gate production has doubled in value! There has also been massive growth in value-added products and the region has the capacity to continue this industry growth.
