FNQ Growers gala dinner 2018


The Far North's horticulture industry was celebrated at a gala dinner in Mareeba on Friday night.


MORE than 300 growers and industry representatives attended the annual FNQ Gowers gala dinner in Mareeba on Friday night.

Lakeland banana grower and developer of Next-Gen compost Peter Inderbitzin was named the 2018 Charlie Nastasi Horticultural Farmer of the Year at the event.

It wrapped up with an auction of locally-produced fruit and vegetables where a record $21,000 was raised for the Mareeba Hospital Foundation.

FNQ Growers chair Joe Moro said the evening was a resounding success, with the turnout and fundraising efforts a reflection of the horticultural industry’s value in the local community.
