Boomaroo Nurseries Site Visit

July 25 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

$30

How do we get access to so much high-quality fresh produce in Australia? The answer begins at Boomaroo Nurseries in Lara.

Join us for the rare chance to tour the site where every year 300 million vegetable seedlings are grown and distributed to growers throughout eastern Australia. Find out how this great business operates and what drives success.

We will be focusing on the many accreditations and certifications the company has achieved as it drives the highest quality production of seedlings. These range from ISO 9001 to Australian Certified Organic. Why so many different accreditations and are these process driven or customer driven?

These and many more questions will be answered by our hosts Peter Smith CEO, and Jacinda Pfeffer, Lead Quality Advisor.

Date: 25 July, 2024

Time: 7:45am for an 8:00am start to approx. 9:30am

Location: Boomaroo Nurseries, 105 St Andrews Drive, Lara.
