ABGC Directors and senior staff met for their quarterly Board meeting in Brisbane last week.
Key issues of discussion included:
Industry Transition Leader Geoff Wilson updated Directors on progress of the Panama TR4 Program transition to industry management by 30 June 2023.
As well as the Code of Practice, key elements of the ABGC’s program are nearing completion including a Compliance Strategy, Sampling and Diagnostic Strategy, Surveillance Strategy, and an overarching Management Plan that will provide a framework for how, with grower support, the ABGC intends to practically manage the disease.
Supply Chain Engagement update
An update and outcomes from the recently completed Back to School campaign was delivered by Supply Chain Engagement Manager Andrew Burns.
He noted that a targeted program to drive amplification and retailer engagement resulted in a successful campaign, particularly with the inclusion of sporting great Jana Pittman.
