AUSVEG VIC Awards for Excellence

Since 2016, AUSVEG VIC has hosted the annual AUSVEG VIC Awards for Excellence dinner. The event shines the spotlight on some of the highest achieving Victorian vegetable growers in the industry. It offers a chance for the Victorian vegetable and potato value chain to come together every year to develop new and strengthen existing connections.
