Apple and Pear Industry Export Development Strategy

Boosting exports is a key priority in reducing industry risk related to our heavy reliance on the domestic market.

The Apple and Pear Industry Export Development Strategy released in 2017 sets a target of exporting 10 per cent of production by 2027.

The initial five-year strategy developed by Melbourne-based consultants McKinna et al in consultation with industry, and funded by Hort Innovation using the apple and pear levy and funds from the Australian Government, maps and prioritises a range of markets from ‘prime prospects’ to ‘low priority’ and sets forth a road map for capturing them.
