Presented by The Australian, The Global Food Forum brings together Australia's leading Agribusiness Leaders, setting the agenda for Australia's $150bn agribusiness sector in what is a critical time for agriculture globally.
Brookfarm, began life as a macadamia farm in the Byron hinterland over 30 years ago.
Today the company produces world-class premium mueslis, granolas, oils, muesli bars and premium nut blends, all featuring Australia's native nut, the macadamia and exports to 16 countries.
Martin Brook will speak on the importance of "Value-adding agriculture".
The Brook family interests have expanded to include the Cape Byron Distillery, using botanicals from their own rainforest to produce their award winning Brookies Byron Dry Gin.
The forum will also feature an address by Federal Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources The Hon. David Littleproud MP, Costco Australia CEO Patrick Noone and Sir Rod Eddington AO.
