Cheers in Singapore to one of Wide Bay’s finest beers

Published:

Some of Singapore’s leading business leaders have whet their whistle on one of the Wide Bay region’s finest brews.

Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner has showcased Bargara Brewing Company beers at a special dinner this evening.

“Queensland has the perfect weather for having a cold beer or two and Queenslanders love their craft beer,” Mr Furner said.

“Bargara Brewing’s beers are made in Bundaberg, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

“They have a wonderful philosophy of brewing their beers with only rainwater and the highest quality ingredients.

“I’m sure our guests were transported to sunny Hervey Bay and the Great Barrier Reef when they sampled these beers.”

Mr Furner said the dinner was a great way to showcase the ingenuity and innovation of Queensland agribusinesses.

“In 2017-18, Queensland exports of agriculture and food products to Singapore were valued at $326 million,” he said.

“We have some of the best premium food products in Australia and consumers in Singapore are demanding more of what we produce.

“Tonight’s dinner is a way of showcasing the valuable trading relationship between Singapore and Queensland and Singapore’s position as one of Queensland’s most important trading partners in South-east Asia.

“The Queensland Government is committed to supporting increased exports to Singapore and surrounding regions, including premium-quality, sustainably produced food and beverages like Bargara Brewing’s beers.”
