Vale: Vicky Kippin-O’Connor

Published on May 9, 2019

It is with great sadness that Freshcare acknowledges the passing of our inaugural and longest serving Chair Vicky Kippin-O’Connor, in March 2019.

Through her involvement with Queensland Fruit and Vegetable Growers and the Australia Banana Growers’ Council, Vicky was instrumental in the establishment of Freshcare and, served as Chair from 2000 to 2015.

A fourth generation primary producer, Vicky was well respected and well known for going above and beyond during her time serving both Freshcare and many other industry organisations.

Vicky’s contribution to and support of the Freshcare Program was significant, and she will be very sadly missed by the Freshcare family.
