Onions foodservice farm tour and education pilot (VN18000)
What’s it all about?
This investment is about educating the Australian foodservice industry about onions, straight from the source. It is facilitating a series of onion farm tours for chefs and hospitality professionals. These events will showcase how Australian onions are grown, provide a better understanding of and connection to the people involved in the industry, and also provide education on the versatility of onions in culinary applications.
A paddock to plate tour was held in Mannum, south Australia where 12 influential chefs from Adelaide were hosted at one of Australia's leading onion farms, Rathjen Farm, and took part in a behind-the-scenes tour of Rivapak, an onion packing facility. They were educated on the production and versatility of onions, in order to build a stronger connection between growers and the food service industry.
