A major challenge for growers can be understanding how to access new markets, a challenging supply chain and having the right tools for exporting. A properly designed export supply chain is instrumental to the success of achieving your business commercial goals.
In 2018 NT Farmers were awarded a Free Trade Agreement – Market Entry Grant Funding Agreement in relation to the Northern Territory Horticultural export market supply chains and to develop exports directly out of Darwin which will allow producers to have a competitive advantage of shortening their supply chain. Export capacity and readiness is a major focus for NT Farmers and can assist in delivering a range of export readiness resources for growers looking to commence exporting or those looking to improve exporting performance.
What are the necessary steps involved in the correct procedures for exporting and interacting with the right agency? Dependent on the commodity these may vary and utilising NT Farmers Association, the representative peak body, Department of Agriculture, Department of Water and Natural Resources, your local government institution, Austrade etc. can assist in preparing you for the export process.
