AMIC SME Hub for Meat Exports

This project received grant funding from the Australian Government’s SME Export Hubs grant opportunity.

Outline of program

AMIC has received a $250,000 grant from the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources for AMIC to establish an export hub for micro/boutique processors looking to expand their food (meat) businesses beyond the domestic sector.

This project aims to assist micro/boutique processors to develop an understanding of meat exports, as well as assist them to navigate the meat export landscape. It is envisioned that this project will help SME processors to grow meat exports and create jobs within the industry, contributing to the government’s vision of $100bn of agricultural exports by 2030.

The program will develop and deliver a series of six modules providing a toolkit on the pathway to export:

  1. Fundamental tools for export
  2. Export plan development
  3. Technical capability – support on regulation
  4. Innovation strategy
  5. Export logistics
  6. Market development and support

The program will also leverage existing resources, such as FIAL workshops.

This site will be updated as we move through project implementation of each phase, including a resource hub for participants with course material, educational webinars and workshops; networking and collaboration; and online membership enquiries.
