New funding set to strengthen Australian agricultural exports to Southeast Asia

The National Agricultural Traceability Grants Program, designed to enhance trust in Australian agricultural exports to Southeast Asia, has allocated $3.9 million to 11 innovative projects focused on supply chain traceability.

The grants aim to enhance credibility and establish comprehensive traceability systems, promoting confidence in Australian products throughout Southeast Asia.

By prioritising traceability from paddock to plate, Australian exporters aim to meet the highest standards of safety and sustainability.

“That’s vital work to grow new and existing markets and build confidence in Australian products that are safe, sustainable, and traced through all stages of production,” said Tina Hutchison, deputy secretary of agricultural trade and regulation group.

Each organisation awarded a grant is focused on achieving traceability goals and fostering prosperous relationships with international consumers.
