Food was on the menu on Monday for Cathy when she hosted the First Food Manufacturers ‘Working Lunch’ in Wangaratta. Small business operators from the North East gathered to discuss issues facing the sector, including transport and freight problems, red tape, and unrealistic food standards for small business. These manufacturers do value-adding exceptionally well and Cathy wants Indi to become renowned for quality food production.

This was the first of four meetings to be held across the electorate in Wodonga, Mansfield and Murrindindi Shire. The group will provide advice to Cathy and suggest how to solve the issues. The group will reconvene in 2015 and Cathy has suggested the possibility of holding a North East Food Manufacturers event in Canberra at some stage next year.
