OUTSTANDING INNOVATION, SUSTAINABILITY & COMMUNITY
-WINNERCHARLIE ARNOTT, GRASS FED BEEF, NATURALLY, BOOROWA, NSW Australian social enterprise organisation Thankful is launching Thankful4Farmers, a major initiative to amplify awareness and generate ongoing, sustainable funding support for Australian agriculture and regional communities.
In collaboration with Thankful ambassador Matt Moran, Thankful4Farmers unifies brands, industries and influencers to amplify support and multiply the impact, bringing industries together to make the biggest difference. By purchasing products with the co-branded Thankful4Farmers logo (see above right), you will be supporting Australian rural and farming communities, who are facing unprecedented economic and social challenges, via a percentage of sales from those products.
Working with local and global thought leaders, the Thankful4Farmers initiative will deliver impact across technology, community, and health and wellness of Australian rural communities.
The inaugural winner of our innovation category presented by Thankful is Charlie Arnott. Charlie will embark on a trip to New York with Produce Awards and Thankful ambassador Matt Moran to visit the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future at Cornell University, attend the Thankful-curated Global Think Tank of thought leaders, as well as attend Australia’s Global Food Forum next year.
“Charlie Arnott is someone who not only cares about the land, but about his animals and, to me, that speaks volumes. His philosophy about the principles of biodynamic and organic production is the way we should be thinking. He’s a pioneer in the industry, breaking away from tradition. We’ve got to be sustainable and we’ve got to be forward thinking, and he’s a great role model for that,” says Matt Moran.
