International dried grape conference participation and FoodNews (DG15700)

Key research provider: Dried Fruits Australia
Publication date: Friday, February 12, 2016

What was it all about?

This project supported industry attendance at the International Dried Grape Conference in 2014 (San Juan, Argentina) and 2015 (Hamburg, Germany), to allow the Australian sector to learn about new technologies, best practice management and handling systems from international counterparts, as well as global market expectations.

The conferences provided a networking opportunity for the Australian industry to further develop contacts with growers, processors and researchers. Associated field trips and visits to overseas processing facilities also provided valuable insights that will improve Australia’s ability to compete.

Detailed reports on the conferences were provided to growers and other industry stakeholders at various forums, Dried Fruits Australia branch meetings and through articles in The Vine magazine and Dried Fruits Australia e-newsletters.

The project also funded an industry subscription to FoodNews, with access for industry stakeholders, ensuring a supply of global information on weather, currency movements, political issues and other matters.
