Citrus Australia voices objections over potential export fee increase
The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is currently undertaking a review of its cost-recovery model for export fees and charges.
The department has been conducting its initial consultation through the various industry representative bodies in an effort to develop a model that is fair and equitable across the horticulture sector. While no policy decision has been announced, Citrus Australia has voiced strong objections against any increase to the tonnage charge on citrus exports.
It is expected that the department will release its proposed new cost-recovery model for public consultation in the coming weeks. While there is no indication on what the proposed model will look like, it appears that cost increases are imminent.
Citrus Australia told that it will continue to advocate on behalf of the citrus industry to ensure that any new fees are charges are distributed equitably across the horticulture sector.
