AGI has been in operation for over 20 years, while the East Gippsland Food Cluster (EGFC) is a not-for-profit network of agri-food businesses and industry stakeholders.

AGI chairman Paul Ford said Gippsland’s food and fiber sector was judged to be on the cusp of a new period of steady growth.

“To nurture and drive this growth we need to transition from a largely volunteer organisation to one with critical mass and long term sustainable funding,” Mr Ford said. ​
