Member for Barker Tony Pasin has welcomed Federal Government funding to expand access to international markets for key industries in Barker. Avocado, oil seed and grain industry bodies have received Federal Government funding under the $5 million Australian Government’s Package Assisting Small Exporters (PASE) program.
The Australian Oilseeds Federation has developed a Grain Sustainability Certification Scheme to help grain growers expand access to international markets. Mr Pasin said this project was supported by a grant of $97,500 from the Federal Government, and that this is a great opportunity for Barker avocados to go global.
