Strawberries Australia

History

The strawberry industry first developed a national R&D plan in 1993, funded by the Australian Berryfruit Growers’ Federation and the former Horticultural Research & Development Corporation (HRDC). The industry was successful in raising a national R&D levy, which commenced in April 1997. Strawberries Australia Incorporated was formed, as a confederation of regional strawberry associations, and is the peak industry body that works with Horticulture Innovation Australia Ltd to advise on, and implement, R&D programs.

In 2019, Strawberries Australia has joined forces with other berry industry associations to form Berries Australia Limited.
