Regional Jobs and Investment Package Announced

Three Coffs Coast businesses will receive massive boosts from the Federal Government under the North Coast Regional Jobs and Investment Package.

The announcement was made on Monday morning by the Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, the Hon Dr John McVeigh MP, and Federal Member for Cowper, Luke Hartsuyker.

The grants package will see $2 million go to Faircloth and Reynolds, while Oz Berries will receive just over a million dollars and over $300,000 to Stone Lake.

Speaking about OzBerries, Mr Hartsuyker said "with the massive growth in exports, 30% a year, it's vital that they export, and this grant will assist them to invest in export technology and invest in upgrading the skills of their workforce".

While in Coffs Harbour, Minister McVeigh will also visit the proposed Coffs Bypass route.
