$3 million on offer under round two of Traceability to boost our premium exports

Applications will be taken until 21 January 2021 for Round Two of the Traceability Grants Program.

This program has the task of ensuring we can show chain traceability to reinforce Australia’s status as a trusted source of clean, safe, and premium produce.

The Australian Government is encouraging applications from farming groups, research organisations and other eligible industry bodies for grants to support projects that enhance traceability in the agricultural produce supply chain.

 Minister for Agriculture, David Littleproud said the $3 million under Round Two of the Traceability Grants Program was an opportunity to boost the competitiveness of our farming exporters.

“Australia’s reputation as a source of premium produce has helped our agricultural exporters secure a strong foothold in markets throughout the world,” Minister Littleproud said.

“With greater export market competition and increasing demand from consumers about the origins and safety of produce, traceability systems are critical for access into these export markets.

“This program provides opportunities for successful applicants to carry out projects that enhance product traceability and the competitiveness of our produce.

“The first round funded a variety of innovative projects including an app to tracking of animals from farm to destination in real time and a portable x-ray scanner for determining seafood provenance.

“This second round of the Traceability Grants Program is part of an overall $7 million investment and an important component of the Australian Government’s Ag2030 plan in support of industry’s ambition of $100 billion in farmgate value by 2030.”

Round Two of the Traceability Grants Program closes on 21 January 2021.
