The Australian Government is inviting Research and Development Corporations and industry representative bodies for perishable agricultural industries via a restricted process to apply for eligible grant activities under the Improving Market Transparency in Perishable Agricultural Industries program – for 3 years from 2022–23 to 2024–25.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission inquiry into Perishable Agricultural Goods (PAG) recommended that governments and industries should explore measures to increase price transparency in PAG industries, in order to increase competition in those industries.

In response to this recommendation, the Australian Government is implementing a program to improve market and price transparency in PAG supply chains.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • provide an opportunity for PAG industries to identify market transparency issues and barriers in their sector
  • co-design potential projects to improve market transparency with participants across the supply chain in interested perishable agricultural industries
  • fund projects to generate knowledge, technologies, products or processes that improve price and market transparency in perishable agricultural industries.
