Australia: ABGC supports bush fire-affected banana growers campaign

Banana growers affected by bush fires in New south Wales and Queensland could get support through a Go Fund Me appeal. The Australian Banana Growers' Council has thrown its support behind the campaign which aims to assist banana growers affected by the East Coast bush fires over the past month.

While fires continue to cause devastation both in NSW and Queensland, growers have so far suffered hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. According to the ABGC, on the NSW Mid North Coast, two growers have lost their entire crop, packing sheds and income for 12 months.
