Ag din­ner fo­rum to can­vass food plan

Myrtleford Times - - News -

CATHY McGowan (MHR, Indi) will host a sec­ond North East ‘ag din­ner’ in Wan­garatta on Novem­ber 21.

The first din­ner, in Au­gust, bought to­gether peo­ple in­ter­ested in many as­pects of agri­cul­ture, in­clud­ing re­search, busi­ness, fi­nance and ed­u­ca­tion.

One key topic dis­cussed was the need for a food and agri­cul­tural plan for the North East, which is be­ing pur­sued in var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties across Indigo, Alpine and Wan­garatta mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.

Hume Food Op­por­tu­nity Strat­egy au­thor David McKinna will ex­plore this topic at the next din­ner at Gate­way Ho­tel.

The Strath­bo­gie strate­gic con­sul­tant es­tab­lished his own firm in 1983 and has since worked in a range of agri­food sec­tors – from com­modi­ties to gro­ceries – or ‘pad­dock to plate’. The din­ner will start at 6pm for 6.30pm. For book­ings go to https://neagdin­ner2017nov. eventbrite.com.au.
