Strategic Platforms

Food and Fibre Great South Coast Inc. is aligning for impact to further the region’s enormous economic potential through food and fibre. Our strategic direction is guided by the Growing Our Regional Futures Strategy 2021-2023.

The Council’s strategic direction is underpinned by the Great South Coast Food and Fibre Action Plan and is intrinsically aligned with the Great South Coast Economic Futures Report 2020.

In 2020-21 and beyond, the Council will concentrate our focus and resources to optimise impact and unlock the opportunities to grow the value and capacity of the Great South Coast’s food and fibre industry. We will do this by concentrating on four Strategic Platforms and their actions to foster regional growth and capacity.
