Horticulture Nuffield Scholarships (BA14002)

Key research provider: Nuffield Australia

What was it all about?

This investment was established to support Nuffield Scholars in the banana industry. Nuffield Scholarships are a chance for Australians in agriculture to grow their practical knowledge and a broad variety of skills, while heading overseas to study a topic related to their industry.

In 2016, the project’s levy-funded scholarship was awarded to Queensland organic banana grower Matthew Abbott. As part of his Nuffield journey, Matthew set out to explore how his business – and the wider industry – could get a greater return for the product. He specifically looked at increasing value through marketing and branding, and also touched on markets for ‘out of spec’ bananas, and export markets.
