Agriculture Victoria is helping agricultural producers across the state grow their businesses and reach new markets with an upcoming series of webinars.
Agrifood Export Essentials is a four-part webinar series that helps Victorian agricultural producers build their capacity to export more produce to more markets, more often.
Presented by Collins Rex, an experienced trade advisor, the series focuses on what a business should consider before starting to export and presents trade-specific modules to build export confidence.
Sarah-Jane McCormack, executive director of agriculture policies and programs, said the series will help small agribusinesses expand into international markets and enable small producers to take advantage of export opportunities.
“Sometimes small businesses may assume that exporting is beyond them, but that’s just not true. Victoria’s products are world class and belong on the global stage. »
“The webinars offer key information and insights that will help sustain Victoria as Australia’s largest food and fiber state,” Ms McCormack said.
The series is free and Victorian agribusinesses are encouraged to sign up.

The Pathways to Export program offers a range of support services specific to agribusinesses beginning their export journey, said Will Dalton, Pathways to Export program manager.
