New guide for Australian fruit and vegetable exporters
Australian fruit and vegetable exporters wanting to go global can now access advice on every step of the export journey in a single online guide.
Federal Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Steven Ciobo, and the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, David Littleproud, has launched, ‘Fresh fruit and vegetable export requirements: A guide for Australian business’ a Turnbull Coalition Government initiative ensuring Australia’s horticulture producers have the necessary information to capitalise on the sizeable business opportunities on our doorstep.
Minister Ciobo said Australia’s premium-quality produce was highly prized by overseas buyers.
“The Turnbull Coalition Government is pursuing the most ambitious trade agenda in our country’s history, opening new doors for more Australian exporters to sell their top quality, clean, green and safe produce to more markets worldwide,” the Minister said.
“Australia’s agricultural products are a sought-after commodity, and this guide will help producers benefit from Australia’s strong reputation, providing current information on market regulations and expectations and links to the correct export documents and templates,” he added.
The value of Australian fresh horticulture exports has nearly tripled over the past five years, growing from $846.5 million in 2012 to $2.11 billion in 2017, according to the IHS Global Trade Atlas (2018). Fresh fruit exports are generating more than half this value, with citrus ($423.1 million) and table grapes ($373.3 million) the standouts.
China has emerged as Australia’s most significant horticultural export market, accounting for nearly one in five dollars of value generated from horticulture exports (19 per cent), and has maintained an average annual growth rate of over 200 per cent over the last 5 years.
