Victorian vegetable grower Bill Bulmer elected as AUSVEG Chair

Third generation Victorian leafy vegetable grower Bill Bulmer has been unanimously elected to the position of AUSVEG Chair following a Board meeting held on Monday 13 November in Melbourne.

Bill Bulmer is Director of Bulmer Farms, located in Lindenow in East Gippsland. Mr Bulmer is a long-serving member of the vegetable industry and currently sits on the Executive Committee of AUSVEG VIC and the Horticulture Committee of the Victorian Farmers’ Federation.



Mr Bulmer’s election follows the decision by Geoff Moar, who has held the position of AUSVEG Chair since 2013, to not nominate for re-election. Mr Moar will continue to serve on the AUSVEG Board. Queensland vegetable grower Belinda Adams has been unanimously re-elected to the position of AUSVEG Deputy Chair.

“During his time as AUSVEG Chair, Geoff Moar has been a steadfast and loyal advocate for the Australian vegetable and potato industries. Under Geoff’s guidance, AUSVEG has gone from strength to strength, with the organisation well-placed to continue its strong track-record of effective advocacy on important industry issues,” said AUSVEG Chair Bill Bulmer.

“On behalf of the AUSVEG Board I would like to thank Geoff for his hard work and dedication to the industry during his time as AUSVEG Chair. I look forward to working extensively with the wider vegetable and potato industries to continue Geoff’s enduring legacy and lead our organisation and the Australian vegetable and potato industries into the future.”

Mr Moar thanked the AUSVEG Board for its support and expertise during his tenure as Chair, indicating that the industry was in a healthier position as a result of its commitment and tireless work.

“The last four years have seen significant changes to both the organisation and the wider industry. It has been a rewarding and valuable experience to work with such a passionate and cohesive Board to help advance the causes of our growers in this time and I am happy to work with Bill and Belinda to continue representing our vegetable and potato growers,” said Mr Moar.

“The last 12 months have been an exciting period for AUSVEG, following our efforts to increase industry collaboration and work with the wider horticulture industry to provide effective services and representation for our growers. This was clearly demonstrated in Adelaide earlier in the year, when we partnered with the Produce Marketing Association Australia-New Zealand to deliver Hort Connections 2017 to nearly 2,500 local and international delegates,” said Mr Bulmer.

“AUSVEG looks forward to continuing to effectively represent Australian vegetable and potato growers in the year ahead and is eager to continue working with the wider Australian horticulture and agriculture industry for the betterment of our growers.”

The meeting coincided with the AUSVEG AGM, which was attended by representatives from all AUSVEG state member organisations.
