Ongoing project

Joint-RDC community trust program (ST19042)

Key research provider: AgriFutures

What's it all about?

The Community Trust in Rural Industries Program is a collaborative partnership between several Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs), the National Farmer’s Federation (NFF) and New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) to build the capacity of food and fibre industries to productively engage with the community.

Hort Innovation is supporting the final two years of the three-year program, which will:

  • Improve understanding of the underlying values that drive community attitudes and trust towards food and fibre production
  • Develop capacity across food and fibre industries to respond to shifts in the level of community trust
  • Identify best practice approaches and strategies for building, rebuilding and maintaining community trust.
