The industry has faced significant hardship throughout 2020, including the devastating bushfires, the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting labour shortages and restrictions in many parts of the country.

However, growers and supply chain businesses continue to adapt and show considerable resilience to ensure consumers have a constant supply of fresh produce during what has been a hard year for many Australian families.

AUSVEG wishes everyone a happy festive season, a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year.

AUSVEG will be closing its office from Thursday 24 December and will be re-opening on Monday 4 January.
