Members of the Armidale Regional Residents’ Association (ARRA) had a tour of the Costa Tomato glasshouse operation last week.
Tal Kanety, Head Grower Technical/R&D, showed the group through one of the glasshouses, explaining the growing process and sustainability initiatives at the New England Highway site. The group then toured the packing shed.
Costa State Manager NSW Vertical Farming, Scot MacDonald, said it was a great opportunity to showcase the facility and answer questions about the glasshouses, which total 40-hectares across two sites.
Requests from ARRA for additional tours in 2023 is a great indication that they found it interesting and enjoyable and Costa is looking forward to welcoming them again in the new year.
