What is it like to work in Food and Fibre in Geelong?
A proud History. For thousands of years the Wathaurong people farmed yams and practised aquaculture at Bream Creek, now called Breamlea. By the mid 1800’s Geelong was riding high on wool and wheat. Refrigeration was invented in Geelong in 1850 by James Harrison, the founder and first editor of the Geelong Advertiser. Australia’s first woollen mills and cloth manufacturing facilities were born here. World leading innovation in Food and Fibre production continues in our region today.
