Experts in Residence
Experts in Residence provided access to free, confidential and one-on-one appointments with industry experts for Murraylands and Riverland businesses involved in the food, beverage and agribusiness sector.
The pilot program was held at the newly redeveloped Loxton Research Centre in late 2017, to help activate that regional hub of industry innovation.
The program attracted a wide range of growers, producers and processors who were keen to gain insight and information on the latest trends and developments on value-adding practices like cold-storage, packaging technology, food technology, soil management, supply chain, logistics, food safety, value chain growth, emerging markets, and exporting.
With a focus on increasing gross production value from the same farm footprint, experts provided advice on opportunities that best fit the business’ crop types, products, resources, and markets.
RDAMR partnered with Regions SA to develop the program, and following its successful pilot run, have now committed to delivering an August 2018 program.
