What is the Food Fossickers Network?

Food Fossickers is a membership based network offering opportunities for your food-related business. Formation of the network has the support of Regional Development Victoria and City of Greater Bendigo.

Food Fossickers is a network of people who are passionate about the important role food plays in a healthy functioning society. It is a group that wants to let people know where their food has come from, and to share the stories about those who helped to put it on the table.

This newly formed network welcomes food and beverage growers, producers, distributors, retailers, cafes, pubs, restaurants, butchers, bakeries and more. Food Fossickers believe in building stronger relationships and an independent supply of local region food.
