The Australian Table Grape Association (ATGA) is the industry representative body representing commercial table grape growers nationally. The ATGA is a not for profit organisation representing the interests of Australian table grape growers, processors and marketers.
The ATGA facilitates further growth of the industry, seeks to maximise its profitability and ensure its sustainability by providing a platform for industry members to collectively respond to industry wide issues, invest in research and marketing, share knowledge, and interact with government and other stakeholders.
Growers pay a levy of one cent per kilogram for table grapes produced in Australia which is payable at the first point of sale. The funds are collected by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Levies Revenue Service on behalf of the industry.
The ATGA is registered under the Victorian Associations Incorporation Act 1985 and as a national body under the Australian Investments Security Commission (ASIC). The Board of Directors is appointed in accordance with the ATGA Constitution. The ATGA employs a professional Chief Executive Officer to act as a focal point for communications and coordination within the industry. The executive is led by a Chairman with delegates from each state and territory that produce table grapes. Executive positions allow for one delegate per 8% of production, with a minimum of one for each state/territory.
