Julia has recently launched a new organic wholesale business in WA www.fona.com.au in the hopes that it will remove a monopoly in the wholesale market in that state and give the farmers a say in regulating their own market.
She previously had an organic retail business that focused on providing affordable and accessible organics to the consumer.
Julia is on the executive committee of the Certified Organic Biodynamic Committee of WA (COBWA) with the aim to provide support to those wanting to go into organics or who are already in organics.
She brings to the role a strategic, marketing based approach and a good knowledge of the organics industry in WA. She has a strong belief that sustainable organic farming methods are the only way forward.
