‘Duck’ Into Mon Komo With Food Sustainability Leaders

Featured Event

Fri 23 Aug
Time : 11:30am - 2:30pm
Where : Mon Komo Hotel
Delicious food and sustainability will be perfectly paired at the Mon Komo Hotel when Business Moreton Bay Region presents Three Blue Ducks.

The special event, being held on Friday 23 August, includes a two-course lunch, and presentation on ethical and sustainable food from the Three Blue Ducks’ Jeff Bennett and Masterchef 2012 winner, Andy Allen.

The Three Blue Ducks' story started with three friends travelling the world and cultivating ideas around sustainable living. With a shared belief in good, ethical food, the Three Blue Ducks vision came to life with the opening of a restaurant in Bronte, eight years ago, followed by The Farm (Byron Bay), Rosebery (Sydney), and recently the W Brisbane.

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism chairman, Shane Newcombe, said the event was designed to shine a light on conscious consumption.

“There is a movement currently taking place with consumers choosing sustainable and ethically farmed produce, and the Three Blue Ducks are at the forefront of this movement,” Mr Newcombe said.

“The Three Blue Ducks success and expansion is proof that conscious consumption is more than just a fad.

“We have top restaurants and cafés all over our region and if they can source their produce from a farm up the road, then why not? If we want to boost our local economy then choosing to buy local is something everyone can do today.”

The event isn’t just tailored for people who are involved in the food industry, it’s an event for people in the community, who want to learn about supporting local producers and why sustainable food is important for the growth of local hospitality.

Founding member of Three Blue Ducks, Jeff Bennett, said they would be sharing the story of the Three Blue Ducks at the event to inspire other businesses to start an environmentally-conscious journey.

“We’ll share some of the difficulties around the decisions we’ve had to make, the costs and the benefits to our business,” Mr Bennett said.
