EPCBH awarded BCCM funding

EPCBH are pleased to be 1 of 10 lucky projects to have received funding through the Business Council or Cooperatives And Mutuals, inaugural Bunya Fund.

The Bunya Fund was launched by the BCCM in June with the aim of helping to grow Australia’s co-operative and mutual sector by bridging the funding gap for early- stage enterprises to develop their businesses.

It provides funding for education, training, advisory and mentoring to support emerging co-operatives and mutuals with high economic, social, cultural and environmental impact.

The support from the Bunya Fund will allow our farmer cooperative to engage appropriate expertise to establish a Master Plan for development of an agribusiness precinct, on our land parcel adjacent to the proposed Cape Hardy Multi User, Multi Commodity port project on Eyre Peninsula. 

Our agribusiness precinct will support the growth and diversification of our economy by establishing complementary industries to Eyre Peninsula farmers such as grain accumulation for export from Cape Hardy, composted green waste & low carbon fertiliser production/distribution, renewable energy generation and into the future, agricultural & civil skills opportunities.
