About the project
The Working Group's application to the Australian Government to fund a range of export market access activities was partly successful. To take advantage of that offer of funding, the AOIWG will need to develop a project plan for:
- development of a Market Knowledge Report on premium markets for Australian commodities
- delivery of a Market Guide for how the organic industry can differentiate their products in competitive export markets
- analysis of the Market Readiness needs specific to Australian farmers, training and up skilling required and most cost-effective delivery options
These activities must be undertaken in 2017‑18 in a rather compressed timeframe. The Working Group will also need to raise further industry contributions to fully leverage the Australian Government's offer of up to $100,000 of matched funding.
