What is FGVL?

With origins dating back over 70 years we’re the peak body for the pome fruits industry in Victoria and a strong, cohesive organisation that provides a voice for its members and works towards a sustainable future for growers and the horticulture industry across Victoria.
Fruit Growers Victoria was formed on 1 July 2005 following the merger of the Northern Victoria Fruitgrowers’ Association, and the Orchardists and Fruit Cool Stores Association.
We represent and further the interests of more than 300 fruit growing, packing and exporting businesses across Victoria.
The FGVL mission statement is:

…striving to provide Victorian fruit industry members with the best possible business environment.
