Clever Agriculture - Smart Food

The Victorian Agribusiness Council Inc., in conjunction with the Ovens Murray Ag Biz Alliance will hold the 15th Victorian Agribusiness Dinner and Summit in the prime agricultural Ovens Murray region of Victoria.

The global trade in food and fibre demands products to have a comparative advantage and satisfy new purchasing criteria. For producers, an in depth knowledge of the ever changing supply chain and ability to innovate through digital technology are necessary management strategies to improve productivity.

Traceability, authenticity, provenance, assurity of food safety, social and environmental accountability are increasingly part of the consumer purchasing decision making process.

The Victorian Agribusiness Summit will present acclaimed speakers on these topics.

Tour 1- Adding Value on Your Farm

This tour will take you on a day into the heart of the beautiful north east of Victoria and visit a variety of farm businesses that have transformed from producing a single product/commodity to an enterprise that has added value to their products, enabling paths to local and premium markets. Engage with and learn directly from producers about their journey - the challenges, insights and embracing of opportunities around capturing value from the supply chain and connecting with the market - the inside story you don't often get to hear and see.

Tour 2: Using AgTech for improving farm productivity and sustainability

An opportunity to visit a number of sites in the region to explore the latest AgTech being used and the practical application on farm to improve the enterprise productivity and sustainability.
