Export facilitators (VG16085)
What’s it all about?
This collaborative program is designed to increase Australian vegetable exports, by supporting growers to capitalise on commercial business opportunities.
It is supporting the roles and activities of export facilitators across Australia’s vegetable growing regions, establishing a facilitator network across Australia.
The facilitators are helping create export plans in conjunction with vegetable growing businesses, promoting collaboration within the industry, and providing linkages across the supply chain that will assist in achieving the overarching objective of the Vegetable Industry Export Strategy of growing the value of vegetable exports by 40 per cent by 2020.
The program is also supporting the delivery of the national Vegetable Industry Development Strategy and the national Vegetable industry export program (VG16061) facilitated by the export development team at AUSVEG.
