June 2012

As President, with your VGA committee members, we appreciate all your hard work, knowledge, expertise and capital finance laid out in machinery, equipment, cool rooms and packing sheds, that are involved in growing the best and cheapest veggies in the world!

Congratulations on all the nominees nominated for national recognition at the Awards for Excellence. There are so many talented entrepreneurs in this exciting, innovative industry. It was inspiring just being in the room that night with all the vegetable industry people.

Your VGA is busily representing fellow growers in all matters, through its committees and IDOs. Thanks again to all members, growers and industry people for your great support. We’ll do our best.

Until next time, enjoy what’s around you!

David Wallace - President, VGA-Victoria
