FAN Action and Impact Groups

FAN Action Groups

FAN is co-developing Regional Action Plans across the four regional clusters (Gympie, Noosa, Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast) focusing on supporting our sector to grow a strong and resilient food and agribusiness industry locally. We have planned a series of workshops in each of the regions to allow for local stakeholders to contribute to the development of the local plans. We are looking for local leaders, innovators, problem solvers, risk takers and forward thinkers to be part of developing the Regional Action Plan in your local area.

FAN Impact Groups

FAN Impact Groups are being scoped around key opportunities that members have identified, such as Future Workforce, Circular Economy, Food Waste, Supply Chain, Carbon and Natural Capital. In early stages we've scoped with members their interests. Next, we will go deeper to understand our local strengths, assets, resources, via symposiums bringing together both content and context experts to explore possibilities, define areas of opportunity and identify key stakeholders and partners.
