There are a heap of great business stories on the border and many will say the Albury-Wodonga region is so ideally located between the capital cities of Melbourne and Sydney that they wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
In this edition we meet with a few of those people and highlight their successes and achievements. We take a look at some of the standout wins from the recent business awards and talk with Meiken Barnes who was a double winner on the night.
The future for the region is looking bright and on page 12 we look at a project on the go to make the Murray region Australia’s nutraceutical hub. The idea is to work with farmers to identify the plants that can be grown in the region in order to produce the key ingredients for nutraceuticals. Another part of that goal is to build a $100 million extraction plant in the region, which could serve a dualpurpose for low-grade or weather-damaged crops to be processed as food additives, for example. Imagine a kind of Silicon Valley, if you like, but for nutraceuticals and food.
All that, and more inside the latest edition of Enterprise.
