FASTA Formed to Boost Horticulture Exports

The Fresh and Secure Trade Alliance (FASTA) is an eight-year program, which will be spearheaded by the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and delivered through the federal horticulture research and development corporation Hort Innovation.

This $130 million horticulture research initiative aims to boost biosecurity initiatives and connect Australian export stakeholders and officials to support the growth of horticultural exports.

Its objective is to reduce the impact of endemic pests on sustainable horticulture crop production, improve Australia’s preparedness for future exotic pest incursions and facilitate a co-ordinated approach to research activity supporting horticultural market access and improvements, which will help to protect the billions of dollars of annual trade Australia’s horticulture market attracts.
