Now is your chance to help shape the future of how Hort Innovation works to invest Australian horticulture levies! Register to take part in one of Hort Innovation’s 2019 Company Strategy Consultation Workshops, taking place around the country, on the Hort Innovation website.

As Australian horticulture’s grower-owned Research & Development Corporation, it’s the task of Hort Innovation to invest levy funds in R&D and marketing projects that grow the Australian horticulture industry in domestic and international markets.

In 2019, the organisation is developing a new Strategic Plan to strengthen the way it works – to make sure your levy works best for you. Hort Innovation is excited about where this journey will lead, and believes it’s important that this journey begins with the nation’s growers. That’s why a series of Strategy Consultation Workshops have been set up in regional and city areas around the country, open to any Australian horticulture business.

Taking place between January and April 2019, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about how Hort Innovation currently works to invest your levy funds, and to freely discuss your views and ideas on how the organisation can do this better in the future to meet the needs and priorities of the sector.

The outcomes of the consultation will be integrated into the development of the new Hort Innovation Strategic Plan, to be released mid-2019.

Visit the Hort Innovation website to learn more and register. For any questions, you can also call 02 8295 2300 or email

If you can’t make a workshop in person, you can also share your thoughts and ideas online using Hort Innovation’s easy-to-use form.
