Tasmanian Horticulture Trade Hub
Fruit Growers Tasmania is working with government and industry stakeholders to promote the development of Tasmania's horticultural exports and domestic trade. Supported by the Tasmanian Department of State Growth and the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, the horticultural export hub seeks to support aspiring and existing fruit, nut and vegetable producers to explore export opportunities, develop export trade connections and make businesses ‘trade-ready’.
In addition to the activities outlined above, FGT staff liaise with Dept. Agriculture representatives to resolve grower issues to keep product moving into market.
Project strategic priorities
As part of this project, FGT will be running a series of activities to help growers develop export skills, navigate government requirements, explore key markets of interest and develop market linkages. These activities include 3 key areas to improve and assist with Tasmanian horticultural export development.
