    “It’s a fabulous initiative and I’m thrilled to see it through to the end!”

    Jacqui Harvey from Yarra Valley Gourmet Foods became a member of the ASBAS Digital Solutions program in early 2019. Jacqui has worked in fast moving consumer goods for the past 25 years. After deciding she wanted to do something on her own, she
    purchased an existing condiments business based under a winery in the Yarra Valley.

    Advertising, Social Media Marketing 101, and Create Video Using a Mobile Phone.
