  1. This report comprises a conceptualisation of regional food chains, a preliminary analysis of one region, Gippsland, where food and fibre comprise around half the regional gross domestic product and an identification of possible projects for the CRC Food Agility. It delivers a baseline of data and analysis for consideration by stakeholders in the Gippsland region for future initiatives and strategies. Of note, the report presents an introduction to regional food value chains in the dairy, beef and horticulture sectors. While not complete, it constitutes a foundational analysis for future Food Agility CRC (FACRC) projects and it aims to serve as an exemplar for analysis of regional development opportunities.
  2. The project was led by Agribusiness Gippsland and RMIT University, in consultation with the City of Greater Dandenong and Federation University.
  3. It brings together the majority of Victorian FACRC partners including Agribusiness Gippsland, City of Greater Dandenong and the Victorian Government.
