We invite you to join with the Southern Forests Food Council as a Member. As we are in an early stage of growth, we are offering complimentary inaugural memberships.
On behalf of the Committee of Management, we formally invite the Southern Forests communities and associated stakeholders to submit applications for FULL or ASSOCIATE membership depending on your eligibility.

In brief, Full Membership of the Food Council is open to:
- Those who either produce food from the Region;
- Have a direct association with primary industry in the Region; or
- Have a direct association with food and tourism industries in the Region.
Please download and complete a SFFC Member Application Form, which can be found at the end of this section, and return to our office to demonstrate your support.
MEMBERS CAN USE THE GENUINELY SOUTHERN FORESTS BRAND MARK (LOGO)
The Genuinely Southern Forests Western Australia brand mark or logo can be used by SFFC members. The brand mark has a number of minor variations that can be seen in our Brand Code of Practice document. This brand mark is predominantly for food producers/growers.
The preferred version is Genuinely Southern Forests Western Australia, however members can use the version that highlights their town, if they prefer.
Once you become a member of the Southern Forests Food Council you can apply under the Brand Code of Practice application form, which can be found on page 8 of the document. Once approved this will allow you to use the brand in your selected and approved manner e.g. on your website, brochures etc.
A Genuinely Southern Forests Supporter category has also been created to allow those people and businesses that are not food producers or growers to participate and use the brand mark. If you are a local business, tourism operator or association for example, you can apply under the Brand Code of Practice to use the Genuinely Southern Forests Supporter brand mark on your promotional material.
Membership forms and Brand Code of Practice forms can be downloaded from the links to the right and once you have completed them you can drop them off to us at the SFFC office or email them through to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s that simple! Even simpler, drop into our office and we will help you fill them out.
