Council opens South Burnett business portal

THE South Burnett Regional Council has launched a new portal to promote the businesses in the region.

Speaking at the June council meeting, Mayor Keith Campbell said Business South Burnett was a collaboration between the council and the Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation.

"Business South Burnett will be all things business, supporting businesses seeking growth and opportunity,” he said

"Changes will be most evident on social media channels, business focused events, internet based information and business growth marketing.”

The marketing space will be run out of the South Burnett Directions office.

The existing South Burnett Directions board and associated brand will continue to lead and represent regional economic development through implementation of the 2020 South Burnett Economic Development Strategy.

In other business news, a range of South Burnett producers attended Meet the Buyer events in Brisbane.

The sessions brought regional farmers into one-on-one meetings with upper management from Coles and JD.com, a Chinese internet retailer.
