What was it all about?

The employment of an Industry Communications Officer facilitated the on-going development of the chestnut industry by undertaking general communication throughout the industry. This project was designed to facilitate the Australian Chestnut industry by providing a mechanism to transfer technology to all stakeholders, including growers, other industry partners and consumers, and to provide support to the activities of the Chestnut Industry Advisory Committee (IAC), Chestnuts Australia Inc., (CAI) R&D and Marketing Committees and its Executive. It extended on the work done in Project CH03001 which had a direct link to Project CH06004 and adopted recommendations from Project CH08002. The strategy depended on the dissemination of information, using primarily print and electronic means. The Chestnut industry was located in all states, except for Queensland and the Northern Territory, and it was a challenge to ensure that information reached all sectors. At the time, there were few formal mechanisms in the Chestnut industry to accomplish this.
