Geraldton Fishermen’s Co-operative is the only Western Rock Lobster processor to maintain a dedicated Research and Development Department and has done so for more than two decades. GFC’s R&D staff play a central role in fostering the Co-op’s culture of continuous improvement. GFC’s R & D program looks at all parts of the supply chain with a view to continuously improving all aspects so that value and return to shareholders from this finite resource is maximised.
GFC’s R & D Department has successfully applied for over $2 million in state and federal funding for commercially relevant research projects that generate added value for members from the Western Rocklobster catch.
GFC’s R & D program has been recognised at state and national levels as one of the best fishing industry R & D programs in Australia.
