“ATGA must continue to look at emerging export markets and try to have protocols in place which have seen set at realistic and achievable levels. Industry must also overcome fruit fly under the newly established Order.”

“I’d like to see our industry continue to develop the export markets we have gained access to, and become a strong export market competitor by delivering the highest quality grapes into the Asian regions.”

“New generations need to work together to prevent the oversupply of different segments of the market. If you want to expand an existing operation, or develop a new one, export markets need to be targeted beforehand.”

“The changes in quality, handling and cool-chain efficiency in all markets over the past 25 years have been amazing, as has the ability of the best growers to adapt and survive. The rapidly evolving economies of our SE Asian neighbours and Australia’s Free Trade Agreements must be closely attended to, and should remain the ATGA’s key objective.”

“I’d like to see young growers become more involved with the ATGA and Board by continuing the work needed for the national peak body to remain viable, and keep the industry sustainable for future generations.”

“Greater participation and interest from growers at a local level, which would then lead to ATGA participation. Market access options also need to be explored further to develop market opportunities for growers.”

“I’d like to see growers get rewarded for the hard work that they have put into producing a quality product. An increase in the amount of markets available both locally and overseas is important. But most importantly, I’d like to see greater industry involvement from growers to consumers – issues in the table grape industry affect us all.”

Barry PBarry Pederson New South Wales

M: 0427 247 142

“On the market front I’d like to see better control of fruit quality standards so that the consumer has a good eating experience every time they purchase grapes. Globally, I’d like to see Australia’s current export markets grow and new markets gained, in order to reduce the pressure on the domestic market and create a more profitable industry for all.”
