FAN’s vision is to actively contribute to the doubling of the region’s food and agribusiness industry by 2030. A key enabler for this is facilitate new opportunities for knowledge sharing and collaboration both across our membership base and with the broader industry. To help support this vision we have 2 exciting new initiatives that we’ll be bringing our members over the coming months.
FAN applied for and was successful in receiving a grant from the Sunshine Coast Council to develop a capability directory for members.
What will this do? It will provide you with access to the contact details for FAN members. It will enable you to see what they do and their key capabilities. Collaboration opportunities will also be included. For example, many of our members are interested in group purchasing, sharing storage or seeking commercial kitchen space.
In our industry survey conducted in early 2018, we asked what are the top 3 things that you’d like to know about other FAN members. We have also directly consulted with many of you seeking this information. We now have a defined list and during May, Kelly Gillies will be calling all FAN members to gather the information for the directory. FAN sponsor Sparx Digital will be integrating this into the members section of our website. We believe this will be a valuable resource for our members and lead to new connections and collaborations.

Member to Member Insights
FAN now has 210 members from across the value chain, including input suppliers, farmers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, exporters, logistics and services. You all have unique skill sets and knowledge and experience that can benefit other FAN members. What we’re offering is the opportunity for you to host a session on a topic that you feel would benefit other FAN members. We’ll promote this to our network and manage the RSVPs through Eventbrite.
To kick of this new Member to Member Insights initiative, FAN members Brandhouse Communications and Kenilworth Dairies will be hosting a get together on 15 May to share the Kenilworth Dairies rebrand journey. To reserve your place click here.
