DATE: 7 march
EVENT: leaders forum
TOPIC: Energy Efficiency and Renewables in the Food and Beverage Supply Chain

This Leaders Forum follows the case of a local boutique brewery with a passion for sustainability and local sourcing with an optional tour of a large beef processing plant that is generating its own energy.

Our venue hosts Malty Grains Cellar Door and Restaurant, run by ecoBiz 3 Star Partner Beard & Brau Farmhouse Brewery will talk about their experience in establishing and running an efficient boutique brewery with sustainability at its core.

A short workshop will follow on sustainable business and local sourcing before a presentation and networking occasion to celebrate our latest ecoBiz Star Partners, including some locally sourced food and beverages.

In the lead up to this event CCIQ ecoBiz in conjunction with Teys Australia, Australia’s second largest meat processor and exporter, will be conducting an optional site tour of their award winning waste water treatment plant and biogas treatment facility.

The Teys Australia Beenleigh site treats its own waste water and at the same time, collects methane from a covered anaerobic lagoon, which it then burns to generate energy on site.  Teys has a long history in energy efficiency, and is an early adopter in Australia in Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) sustainability reporting.
