A large public forum was held in Victoria’s Goulburn Valley on May 16 to
officially launch a community cooperative that local people hope will
become an example for the rest of the country.

The launch came almost a year since Heinz announced it would shut down its
tomato processing plant in the nearby town of Girgarre. The closure left
146 workers without a job and affected about 600 people whose livelihoods
depended on the factory.
