BLUEPRINT LAUNCH 24 AUGUST 2020 

GPSA are proud to announce the launch of the SA Grain Industry Blueprint at our Annual General Meeting, to be held on the 24 August 2020 at the Freeling Agricultural Recreation Multi-purpose (FARM) Centre. 

Grain Producers SA is leading and coordinating the development of the South Australian Grain Industry Blueprint for 2020-2030. The initiative is the first of its kind for South Australia’s grain sector and will be developed in cooperation with industry and Government.

The Blueprint will provide a strategic framework to enable long-term planning and inform private and public grain industry investment decisions. The Blueprint will also help to deliver greater investment through public-private partnerships, will boost research and development, as well as provide jobs and skills training at all levels. Further, the Blueprint will ensure that SA producers, exporters, handlers, and manufacturers can continue to access overseas markets and will help to build export opportunities. 

Underpinning the Blueprint are six key pillars: Market Opportunities, Capturing Value, Biosecurity & Market Access, Innovation, Building Industry Capacity and Infrastructure. 

Grain Producers SA have also launched a seven-part podcast series which details the vision to make grain a $6 billion industry by 2030 as part of the Blueprint. The Six Pillars Podcast delves into the vision behind each pillar, with host Drew Radford discussing the challenges and opportunities with Blueprint manager Jonathan Wilson.
