    Thank you to our sponsor: Buderim Ginger – “The Worlds Finest Ginger”

    Queensland Ag Shows are proud to announce Buderim Ginger as the Dark Rich Fruit Cake Competition Sponsor.

    From a small farming community in the pre World War 1 days, to one of the world’s finest ginger producers, food processors and tourist destinations, Buderim Ginger is a long-standing and proudly successful Australian business.

    It all started with some raw ginger pieces that found their way to Buderim, Australia many, many years ago. They thrived in the rich volcanic soil, the high rainfall and humidity. When the Second World War cut ginger supply from China, sales of the Buderim produced crop soared. As a result of this, five Buderim farmers met together in an old blacksmith’s shop and formed The Buderim Ginger Grower’s Co-operative Association Limited. Between them they had capital of 25 pounds, two wooden vats, 14 tons of green ginger and plenty of Australian spirit.
