Industry excited by new Agtech and Logistics Hub
The new Agtech and Logistics Hub located at Charlton was the key focus of TSBE Food Leaders Australia’s the first Meet Up of the year, showcasing the exciting new space for growing the local Agtech industry.
This was the first public viewing of the Agtech and Logistics Hub home at FKG’s Witmack Precinct which will grow the agricultural value chain through the development of innovation and technology.
Thomas Hall, Interim Director of AgriFood Connect, said the hub is an exciting new initiative for regional Queensland.
He said nearly 100 people attended the event which shows the “relevance and attraction” the Hub has to the agribusiness community.
“It’s really encouraging to see such a good roll-up, thanks to all our partners,” Mr Hall said.
TSBE Food Leaders Australia (FLA) General Manager Bruce McConnel, said it was exciting to showcase the hub’s temporary location and facilities, direct to industry.
“This is effectively the space now available for entrepreneurs and Agtech people to come together and work, free of charge while we’re in this location,” he said.
The AgTech and Logistics Hub is jointly funded by the Queensland Government, the FKG Group, TSBE, University of Southern Queensland and University of Queensland.
It is hoped it will bridge the gap between agriculture industry challenges and problem solvers by fast-tracking the deployment of innovative solutions.
