The event provided a platform for these producers to connect to buyers to help them grow their businesses and extend supply chain networks.
vegetablesWA took part as an exhibitor this year and showcased the vegetable industry in Western Australia, the role of the Association and displayed a range of superb produce from Loose Leaf Lettuce, Love Apple and WA Corn Growers. We want to thank those who contributed produce for the display.
