Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers Cooperative Ltd (BFVG) have been providing advocacy and support services to the horticulture sector of the Wide Bay Region for over 70 Years and we pay tribute to the thousands of farming families who have been involved with and contributed to the Cooperative since 1948.
We acknowledge our life members and Board of Directors who provide advocacy and guidance to ensure the Cooperative remains relevant and representative of the wider Industry.
As the Managing Director of BFVG, I personally welcome your sponsorship of the 2020 Gala Dinner, themed ‘Looking to the future of the Industry’. The Horticulture sector in this Region represents innovative, resilient producers who are major contributors to the Australian Horticulture Sector.
We are also the food bowl of Australia! The Wide Bay Region provides 70 percent of Australia’s sweet potatoes, 50 percent of its macadamia nuts, we’re a major supplier of avocado’s and we’re also home to Australia’s largest chilli company. Furthermore, we are major contributors to a wide and diverse range of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and nuts. The region has enviable water security, a beautiful sub-tropical climate, and fertile soils; combine this with the vibrant tourism sector, and there are plenty of reasons to visit and stay in the Wide Bay.
Our producers look forward to the biennial BFVG Gala Dinner, which acknowledges agribusinesses who contribute to the Industry helping us be globally competitive at Regional, National and International levels.
This Sponsorship Prospectus includes various levels of opportunities which will highlight your contribution to the people that drive our industry forward. I urge you to consider all levels and contact us with any queries you may have.
We look forward to you joining us Saturday 23rd May 2020 at the Multiplex Sport and Convention Centre in Bundaberg from 5.30 pm where over 500 guests will together celebrate the significance of the Australian Horticulture Industry entire Supply Chain in a five-star fine dining Gala Event.
