ABGC directors and senior staff travelled to Coffs Harbour in late February to meet with local growers and hold their quarterly board meeting.

A tour of three banana farms and the Oz Group pack house was conducted during the visit, giving directors the opportunity to hear growers’ issues and concerns, which included the Coffs by-pass proposal and HARPS auditing.

The board continues to work through these issues in consultation with NSW growers and thanked those who made time to meet with directors and staff during their visit to the region. Growers and the ABGC also caught up at an informal dinner.
