The Andrews Labor Government is helping regional Victorian businesses grow through the third round of the Boost Your Business Voucher Program.
Murray Gold Australia and The Christie Centre are two of 70 small to medium enterprises across Victoria to have received funding to tap into new markets and create local jobs, succeeding in the areas of Food Innovation and Social Enterprise respectively.
The vouchers are presented to eligible businesses in the categories of Asia Gateway, Food Innovation, Advanced Manufacturing, Social Enterprise, Entrepreneurs with a Disability, Defense, Aerospace and Security and Victoria-Israel Innovation.
The program gives businesses the chance to explore research and development opportunities, identify new markets and create new products.
More than $1.8 million has been provided in this round of vouchers, and more than $7.8 million since the program began in January 2018.

“These two businesses are a real success story for Mildura and it’s great that this government can play its part in providing opportunities for businesses across regional Victoria.
“I would urge anyone looking to expand their business to investigate the Boost your Business program, and get a head start on the next round of grants.”
