What our members are saying

Geelong Manufacturing Council has been a valuable resource for Boomaroo Nurseries, keeping us well informed of upcoming opportunities for innovation and growth, strategic plans within the region and initiatives taken by like-minded manufacturing businesses. Most significantly, networking opportunities and the Diversification and Innovation Program have directly contributed to research and development, and innovation projects being delivered within our business.

We are also grateful for Geelong Manufacturing Council’s nomination of Boomaroo Nurseries for the 2020 Geelong Business Excellence Awards, for which we were recognised as recipient of the award for ‘Medium to Large Business’, as well as being listed as finalists in a further 5 awards categories.

Thank you GMC!

Director, Boomaroo Nurseries

A special thankyou to the Geelong Manufacturing Council for sponsoring the Geelong Business Excellence - Advanced Manufacturing Award. Farm foods was thrilled to win this year. It was a great boost last night for our employees in what's been a tough year for the meat industry with Covid 19.

We appreciate the support, guidance and networking, training and development options the GMC offers.

Greg Hughes

CEO, Farm Foods

Our frontline leaders are able to identify, lead and implement improvement projects. This is a great development opportunity for leaders.
