About the Collaboration
Regional Development Australia Moreton Bay (RDA Moreton Bay), Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) and Sunshine Coast Council (SCC) are collaborating to offer a unique service of support to the Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast Strawberry industry. As a Federally funded agency, RDA Moreton Bay has employed the services of a Business Cluster Manager. The Economic Development teams of Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast Councils are providing resources.
Regional Development Australia (RDA) Moreton Bay, along with its industry partners are looking to develop a regional cluster across the Food & Agribusiness industry to form business partnerships between producers, manufacturers and retail to actively work towards elevating the profile and improving the performance of the industry.

Following on from the Food & Beverage Cluster and the highly successful The Sweetest Job campaign in 2016, RDA Moreton Bay is currently exploring the possibility of combining these initiatives to form a Food & Agribusiness Cluster for the Moreton Bay Region in 2017. Working closely with industry partners and government, RDA MB will take the lead on clustering likeminded businesses across these industries and delivering relevant campaign and program information.
RDA MB has recently been awarded a funding grant for 2017 under the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work program to run The Sweetest Job campaign. This will provide 120 applicants across the Moreton Bay and Sunshine Coast regions with the opportunity to gain Certifications in Horticulture or Packaging & Logistics with a view to gaining sustainable employment in the food and agribusiness industry.
