APAL is excited to announce its 2021 Industry Forum will return next month.

The Forum will kick-off with welcome drinks on Sunday 30 May, with sessions continuing across Monday 31 May and Tuesday 1 June at the MCG in Melbourne.

“Across the past 18 months our industry has dealt with floods, fires and Covid-19. In every instance our industry has responded to become smarter, faster and more sustainable,” said Phil Turnbull APAL CEO.

“At the same time the pandemic has shown just how lucky we are as a nation to enjoy fresh, high-quality locally produced food,” said Phil.

“With this momentum behind us, our industry is incredibly well placed to grow further and faster than we may have thought possible,” said Phil.
