Flagship Farmers – client news from West Carr & Harvey
The McDonald’s Flagship Farmers Program provides an opportunity for farmers within McDonald’s supply chain to be recognised for their commitment to agricultural sustainability. The platform allows them to share their knowledge with other farmers around the world with a view to driving positive change in the industry and promoting sustainable practices.
As generational farmers committed to the future of their Boorook property, David and Nick Allen have been the first Australian producers to be named as “Flagship Farmers” within the program.
They have been recognised for their focus on succession planning and sustainable practices such as grazing management, tree planting and water conservation.
Inspired by the knowledge sharing as a result of the program, David recently made the decision to travel to Europe to connect with other flagship farmers and learn more about their sustainability practices on farm.
Congratulations to the Allen family on being recognised by the program and for their ongoing commitment to sustainability! To find out more: https://www.flagshipfarmers.com/en/profile/david-and-nick-allen/
State-wide plastic bag ban: is your business ready?
The Victorian Government will implement a state-wide ban on lightweight plastic shopping bags from November 2019. The ban will apply to all retailers including supermarkets, greengrocers, bakeries, pharmacies, clothes stores, restaurants, cafes, markets, food outlets, and many more.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning has engaged the National Retail Association (NRA) to help retailers transition away from lightweight plastic bags. An NRA representative will visit stores in the Geelong area to discuss the plastic bag ban on Wednesday 14 August and Thursday 15 August. To request a visit to your store, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Find out more about the plastic bag ban at vicbagban.com.au.
