Excited for innovation
FOOD Leaders Australia hosted 150 people in Toowoomba last week for the annual 400M Ag and Food Innovation Forum.
The forum brought together bright innovators to connect with industry, the region’s most influential investors and the broader food and ag sectors looking to new and relevant developments.
The forum featured a number of speakers including keynote speaker, Ian Mason, co-founder of Virgin Start Up.
