BUNDABERG Fruit and Vegetable Growers celebrated 70 years of representing the needs of horticulture producers at the BFVG Biennial Gala Dinner last Saturday night.
Since its inception in 1948, the cooperative has witnessed the industry evolve and expand to what it is today.
The event not only paid tribute to all those who have contributed to the organisation over the years, but also to the entire horticulture industry in the Wide Bay Burnett region.
It also acknowledged agribusinesses and their supporters who contribute to the Industry.
