To ensure its future viability and sustainability, it is vital that the Australian coffee industry minimise the risks posed by exotic pests and respond effectively to plant pest threats. The Biosecurity Plan for the Australian Coffee Industry (v 1.0) is a framework to coordinate biosecurity activities and investment for Australia’s coffee industry. It provides a mechanism for industry, governments and stakeholders to better prepare for and respond to, incursions of pests that could have significant impacts on the coffee industry. It aims to assist producers to evaluate the biosecurity risks within their everyday farming and business activities, formally identify and prioritise exotic plant pests (not currently present in Australia), and focus on future biosecurity challenges.
