AUSVEG is Australia’s peak industry body for the vegetable and potato industries. It has welcomed the appointment of Queensland vegetable and onion grower Andrew Moon from Moonrocks, and Tasmanian vegetable grower Mark Kable, from Harvest Moon, as Grower Directors of AUSVEG.
Victorian leafy vegetable grower Bill Bulmer was unanimously re-elected to the position of AUSVEG Chair, while South Australian vegetable, potato, and onion grower Renee Pye was unanimously elected as Deputy Chair.
Andrew will replace Belinda Frentz, who is stepping down after serving seven years on the Board, including four as Deputy Chair, while Mark will replace Michael Radcliff, who is stepping down after three years on the Board.
“Both Andrew and Mark are actively involved in the vegetable and wider horticulture industry, with Andrew previously serving as Chair of Onions Australia and Mark the current Chair of the Tasmanian Agricultural Productivity Group,” said Bulmer. “Andrew and Mark will bring significant experience, expertise, and passion to their new roles on the AUSVEG Board, and I look forward to their contributions to policies and initiatives that will lead our organization and the Australian vegetable and potato industries into the future.”
