STRONG HISTORY,
BRIGHT FUTURE

For more than sixty years, the Australian Banana Growers’ Council has led and represented banana growers, with the aim of ensuring a profitable and resilient industry future. The ABGC is the only organisation solely focussed on producers of Australia’s favourite fruit. As the national industry development body, the Australian Banana Growers’ Council runs several grower focussed projects and advocates on behalf of banana farmers across the country. The ABGC’s vision is to enable their members – and the industry more broadly – to maximise innovation and opportunity.
