This event has now closed.

In 2016, the Central Highlands Development Corporation (CHDC) & the Central Highlands Regional Council (CHRC) established the Central Highlands Accelerate Agribusiness (CHAA) initiative to grow, promote and realise the value and opportunities for all businesses producing agricultural and food products, processing and providing other value-adding services in the Central Highlands.

We were delighted to meet more than 140 of our agricultural industry representatives at our CHAA Roadshow in early March.  Delivered in Emerald, Springsure, Rolleston and Capella, the CHAA Strategic Advisory Group were invigorated by the level of enthusiasm to grow the Central Highlands region and commitment demonstrated to work together to deliver priority projects.
