AGM 2021

Join leaders in fruit and vegetable production, retail, business, and federal government for this important opportunity to come together to discuss issues and decide on a course of action for addressing them in the coming year.

Join us virtually for our 99th Annual General Meeting (AGM)!

This year's theme, Horticulture Strong - Reflect. Adapt. Persevere., is meant to recognize the unique challenges faced by everyone in our sector over the past year and in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will celebrate our industry's resolve, adaptability, and determination in the face of great challenges as well as celebrate 2021 as the International Year of Fruit and Vegetables.

The virtual AGM will allow ease of access to all our members, with no travel costs, no registration fee, nor the need to take time off to travel.
