This program is for present and next generation leaders in the Australian and New Zealand fresh food, grocery, beverage and FMCG industry.  The course provides a unique opportunity for managers and entrepreneurs across all industry segments to network and address current issues with an informed international faculty, recognised industry leaders and other participants from throughout the supply chain.

The program is fully residential, highly intensive and interactive, challenging and designed to develop knowledge and skills in the following areas:

The program is limited to 42 participants so it’s best to book as early as possible to ensure your place.
