Cherry market access and trade development (CY18002)
What’s it all about?
Beginning in late 2019, this project is supporting the export readiness of the Australian cherry industry, following earlier levy-funded project Export readiness and market access (CY16004).
All the work is designed to help growers in taking advantage of existing, new and emerging export opportunities, with key project activities including, but not limited to:
- Assisting in designing training materials and events for growers, packers and exporters on the requirements for export to markets of interest
- Facilitating the registration and audit of export facilities
- Developing and implementing a monitoring and management program for a range of pests and diseases of quarantine concern.
The project is also responsible for maintaining a biosecurity management plan and the industry’s export manual; facilitating in-bound visits from trade markets; supporting industry attendance at international trade shows; and delivering an export strategy detailing market access, improvement and development priorities.
For more information on the work, to access copies of the Cherry Export Manual (including future updated versions), or for a copy of the cherry industry’s Biosecurity Management Program, contact Cherry Growers Australia – either Tom Eastlake at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the general Cherry Growers Australia office on (03) 6231 1229 or at email@example.com.
