Grower profile: Parvinder Lalli — Paving the way for the berry industry in Corindi, NSW

This article is a grower profile on Parvinder Lalli. Like many of the early blueberry growers located in the Coffs Harbour area, Parvinder was originally a banana grower in Woolgoolga who gave blueberries a try around the mid-2000s when banana prices started to fall due to saturation of the market. Unfortunately, when they upgraded the Pacific Highwayand by-passed Woolgoolga, the bypass went through his property and left an unviable amount of land for horticulture production. Subsequently, Parvinder purchased a property in Corindi with 5 acres of macadamias on it in 2010. He decided to pull out the macadamias and re-planted with 6 acres of blueberries which he profited well from.
