Partnership makes world an oyster for Toowoomba producers

NATION-wide primary food producers and food processing and value-adding businesses will soon have greater support to grow their capability to secure global opportunities under a new initiative being driven by the Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise, the University of Southern Queensland and other key stakeholders.

In consultation with USQ and in response to the needs of food businesses across the region, TSBE has devised the concept of Food Leaders Australia.

With the tagline "Growing Your Global Opportunity", FLA has been developed to position the Toowoomba region as a competitive and viable food-hub and to assist Australian-based and operated businesses get export-ready and access export markets and grow their overall business capability.

The development group and the university met recently to decide on the final brand concept to be carried out under the Food Leaders Australia banner and will join industry in the coming weeks to officially launch the initiative.
