It became incorporated in early December 2011 and is now funded by its members with a significant contribution made by members in terms of volunteering time and expertise including a management committee and sub-committees for finance, education and training, communications, events and networking. We have approximately one hundred members made up of representatives from across the industry including growers, artisans, manufacturers, restaurateurs, retailers and distributors and including: Brookfarm, Stone & Wood Brewery, Salumi Australia, Mount Warning Spring Water and Bangalow Sweet Pork. Criteria for membership are:
