Food and fibre industries including dairy, meat, horticulture and vegetable production are all significant strengths in Gippsland. The region’s high annual rainfall, temperate climate and productive soils make it an excellent location for businesses specialising in agri-business.
The Morwell Innovation Centre at Hi-Tech Precinct Gippsland enables innovation-focused food and fibre industries to build on the long-standing international reputation of the sector – especially as a producer and processor of quality food products.
The sector continues to diversify, supported by a large proportion of technically skilled workers and a strong, established partnership between major providers of education, training and employment. For more information on the sector in the region visit foodandfibregippsland.com.au
