A supply chain workshop was held today in Brisbane, whose focus was nothing less than making Queensland’s fresh produce exports the first choice of importers and retailers in Asian markets.
The ‘Toward Consistent Export Quality’-workshop provided a valuable opportunity to build Australia’s horticulture reputation in Asia, said Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner. “During the 2018-19 financial year, Queensland exported more than $300 million worth of fruit and vegetable produce including mangoes, citrus and avocados to Asian markets. Product quality and supply chain service are two advantages that Queensland and Australia can build on to maintain our competitive edge in the Asian market.”
“The ability to continually deliver quality produce to importers, retailers and consumers is fundamental to growing our export markets in Asia. Learnings from today’s workshop will potentially open opportunities to enhance the reputation of Queensland produce exporters to consistently deliver high quality, fresh products to Asian retailers.”
