Australia’s leading fresh produce professionals are being inducted into the Businesswomen’s Hall of Fame ahead of International Women’s Day on 8 March.
Marie Piccone, managing director of leading mango grower-exporter Manbulloo, Catherine Harris of Harris Farm Markets and Miranda Sharp of Melbourne Farmers Markets will join 15 more entrepreneurial businesswomen in the Hall of Fame, which recognises Australia’s female business trailblazers.
“The collective influence that women entrepreneurs have on business in Australia has never been as cohesive and prominent as it is now,” said Suzi Dafnis, CEO of HerBusiness, which manages the Businesswomen’s Hall of Fame. “The women inducted into this year’s Hall of Fame are incredibly inspiring with stories of determination and passion that have set them on paths to success — paths that often have quite a few big bumps along the way.”
“Being a business owner is one of the most rewarding, yet challenging, experiences a woman can have. The Hall of Fame shines a light on Australia’s most talented women entrepreneurs and shares their authentic — stories that inspire other women to be bold and confident in business — even when the going gets rough or they lose their mojo. Successful women inspire other women to strive for success.”
Running for 19 years, more than 200 women have been inducted into the Businesswomen’s Hall of Fame, and are nominated by industry and business groups and the HerBusiness Advisory Board.
