Dear <<First Name>>,

Thank you for the encouraging responses, emails and telephone calls supporting the approach of our THE OTHER SIDE project.
The Project was more fully described in Newsletter #6, available here.
We now have a working group of about 30 people who have put their hand up to be involved. They are from growers, packers, exporters, transport, bio-security, government, RDC, and peak industry groups. A great mix bridging across diversity and bringing many decades of experience and, in turn, the network of connections that are at their fingertips.
We'll be untangling the spaghetti that will be the “NEW NORMAL”, but we won’t be working alone and there is no competitive element. Open and sharing. Linking into advisory groups seeking input to provide to industry and government.

Over the next 10 days we’ll sort out the best way to communicate upstream and downstream, and what key areas we may focus on.

Our objective is to ensure that when export markets are opening under the new normal, key entry considerations have been untangled.

Of course, THE OTHER SIDE sits behind many activities that are addressing the current challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. As the success of those activities brings us closer to the new normal, we’ll be ready.

Be part of the challenge.

I'm happy to join in "The Other Side"

From Hort Innovation

A new whole-of-horticulture initiative

Hort Innovation has developed a whole-of-horticulture, direct-to-consumer marketing campaign that aims to invigorate consumer purchasing habits for fruit, vegetables and nuts, both during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is a great initiative that will flow across social media, etc. and I strongly recommend that you find out how it supports growers and suppliers sell more.

Managing COVID-19

As usual, please remember the wide-ranging levels of assistance provided by the Federal and Tasmanian governments. Waivers, grants, loans, changing thresholds and deferments, all are available from the Tasmanian government website.
