What was it all about?
This project BS13700 aimed to establish and build relationships with international experts in the fields of best practice, supply chain management, marketing, and new varieties. This was especially important given the global nature of variety movements and the contracting nature of expertise within the Australian strawberry industry.
It also assessed opportunities for strawberries from Australia to be exported to Asia to fill requirements as well as learn about new production methods, supply chain management, changes in variety distributions and the drivers for innovation in these areas.
Additionally it identified post-harvest management technologies that facilitated high food safety standards and increased the quality of strawberries once they left the farm. This in turn led to great consumer satisfaction.
