About us

Our Vision

Beanstalk Innovation has set up a ‘Model Factory’ in Geelong, with the following purpose:
  • provide a space for Research and Development for local food manufacturers as well as the local community
  • provide skills and educational opportunities to the regional community, both its youth, unemployed and disadvantaged groups, with a view to employment within the food industry sector
  • provide an environment in which local artisans can develop and manufacture their product with an opportunity to sell their product through a retail outlet or develop and implement a business plan
  • profile country regions as sophisticated food destination
  • promote country regions as producers of artisan and quality food
Beanstalk Innovation and TQMS seek to raise the profile of education and training as key drivers of the region’s economic and social prosperity. We also seek outcomes that:
  • connect education and training to employment
