This project has been based on one of the principal platforms underpinning the strategic intent of the Ginger Industry’s Strategic Plan:
Transparent communication within industry and with stakeholders and customers.
The Australian Ginger Industry Association (AGIA) understands that to achieve that principal it has to engage a Research and Development extension/education officer to manage communication within industry and its supply chain.
The responsibilities that will enable the officer to achieve increased knowledge transfer with industry and drive an inclusive uptake along the entire supply chain include:
– Identify and engage business development opportunities; and
– Interpretation of R&D projects and delivery of such to stakeholders.

Objective Summary

Business Development
The officer will develop a plan in conjunction with the Industry Advisory Committee (IAC) and peak Industry Body (PIB) to outline industry’s commitment to all supply chain stakeholders which will ultimately determine an all-inclusive program to build consumer demand and improve consistent productivity and supply.
This can only be achieved with direct involvement and engagement with all stakeholders in the ginger industry. The Priority Action Three of the AGIA Strategic Plan clearly outlines the requirement of industry to work co-operatively with stakeholders and other industries to promote and facilitate industry development.
Extension of Research & Development Outcomes
This is a pivotal role of the officer ensuring that all stakeholders are kept up to date on outcomes and milestone reports relating to any R&D, marketing or biosecurity issues relating to the ginger industry.
Extension outcomes are also an integral part of the priorities of Steering the future of industry direction component of the AGIA Strategic Plan.
