Australia’s reputation for premium fruit and orchard productivity is globally established. To unlock the next wave of value and ensure a more profitable future, the apple and pear industry must work to improve its commercial practices.
Launched in 2019 as a companion to the highly successful Future Orchards program, Future Business’ priorities, are to harmonise supply chains, improve procurement practices, promote risk management and support data-driven decision making. These types of sound business management practices will help to transform the long-term outlook of the apple and pear industry.
Owned and delivered by APAL, Future Business’ offering will be guided by members’ needs and already offers a range of services and training programs, including tools and templates, risk workshops and commercial advice to improve planning, capture data and improve efficiencies that will improve competitiveness.
