Horticulture Australia appoints directors

HORTICULTURE Australia Limited (HAL), the research and development arm of the Australian horticulture industry, has appointed two new board directors, Mark Napper and Craig Musson.

AUSVEG, the national peak industry body for vegetable growers, of which Mr Napper has served as an appointed director, has welcomed the appointments.

"Mr Napper has extensive experience across many sectors of Australian horticulture and will be a valuable contributor to the HAL board," AUSVEG chairman Geoff Moar said.

"Mr Napper served as an appointed director at AUSVEG from March 2009 until November this year, providing valuable insight and advice on all issues related to the Australian vegetable and potato growing industries," Mr Moar said.

Mr Napper owns a fruit orchard in Bangalow, NSW, and was CEO and director of Windsor Farm Foods, in addition to serving as a director for the summerfruit and mango industries.

Mr Musson runs WAFEX, an international flower business comprising breeding, production and marketing.
