Working together to develop and grow.

The Limestone Coast Food and Agribusiness Cluster works together with its members and stakeholders to deliver benefits for its members, and the region.

We collaborate.

We collaborate and partner to enhance the ability of food and beverage business to innovate and value-add beyond what they can do on their own, increasing competitiveness and economic benefit. We encourage a culture of collaboration, understanding that we are only as strong as our relationships.  We will work together to respond to challenges and opportunity.

We exist to foster a diverse, strong and resilient and well-known food and beverage industry of provenance. We work to add value to the region’s food ecosystem, resulting in economic prosperity and resilience.

We promote.

We bring awareness to the provenance profile of the Limestone Coast. We build awareness of the quality and variety of produce available from our region. We share the stories of our producers.

We connect.

We facilitate the growth of the region’s networks, to connect us to others who can assist in facilitating the solving of problems, responding to challenges and making the most of opportunities.

We share.

Built in the spirit of collaboration we encourage the sharing of knowledge, skills, networks and of resources, taking a collective approach – a ‘share’ mentality.
