Aus­tralian pro­duce show­cased

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - News -

MORE than 200 Aus­tralian fruit, veg­etable and nut pro­duc­ers and in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives are in Hong Kong this week to show­case their pro­duce at Asia’s largest horticulture trade show, mark­ing the be­gin­ning of a six-month tour of Asia and the Mid­dle East.

The group – com­pris­ing the in­dus­try’s big­gest trade del­e­ga­tion – joined Hort In­no­va­tion in of­fi­cially open­ing the new Taste Aus­tralia pav­il­ion at Asia Fruit Lo­gisit­ica.

Over the two-day event, the group will gain ex­po­sure to 11,000 top trade de­ci­sion mak­ers from 74 coun­tries.

Hort In­no­va­tion’s John Lloyd said the group was ex­cited to be at Asia Fruit Lo­gis­tica, es­pe­cially when Aus­tralia’s horticulture ex­port po­si­tion is so strong.

“This year we are tak­ing the new Aussie horticulture po­si­tion, Taste Aus­tralia, to key world mar­kets for the first time,” he said.

“And, we are also show­cas­ing more pro­duce than ever with a record num­ber of grow­ers and in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives.”
