Levy-paying vegetable grower-exporters are invited to apply to attend World of Perishables Dubai as part of the Taste Australia campaign, the biggest trade push in Australian horticulture history.

World of Perishables will be held from 1–3 October 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, and is the only dedicated exhibition for fresh fruits and vegetables in the Middle East and the region’s most important platform for the fresh produce sector to meet and do business.

The anticipated travel dates for successful participants will be 30 September–5 October 2018. The program for delegates on this trade mission will include the following valuable opportunities:

  • Building your knowledge of the local supply chain and participating in a market insights tour.
  • Gaining introductions to retailers, importers and wholesalers in the market.
  • Exhibiting and showcasing your products to international fresh produce buyers.

AUSVEG has a limited number of funded positions available for levy-paying vegetable growers to participate in this trade mission, facilitated through our levy-funded export work. To learn more about the benefits of being part of this massive trade show, take a look at this promotional leaflet.
