Registration is now open for GPSA's trade and market access workshops, coming to a location near you in February 2021!
Ensure your grain is Market Ready in the morning, and look Beyond the Silo in the afternoon; GPSA has created a full day of FREE interactive sessions tailor made to assist grower’s understanding of trade and market access barriers, requirements, and diversification opportunities.
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with industry experts on everything from how to best manage phytosanitary barriers to trade, to tips on diversifying grain markets.
Registration is FREE but limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, and available ONLY to GPSA producer members.
Register for one of our workshop locations below:
Facilitated by biosecurity consultant Will Zacharin, the Market Ready workshop highlights the perspectives of exporters, storage and handlers, researchers and developers, agronomists and local farmers to facilitate attendee’s knowledge regarding on-farm grain hygiene practices and specifically their obligations under the Grain Industry Market Access Forum’s Industry Management Plan.
Market Ready is an initiative of the South Australian Grain Market Access Group. It is delivered by Grain Producers SA with the support of the Federal Government’s Agricultural Trade and Market Access Cooperation Program.
The Beyond the Silo workshop features guest speaker Andrew Whitelaw, Thomas Elder Markets, and will engage attendees with world market dynamics and global grain outlooks, including on-farm diversification strategies to target emerging markets. The workshops will also cover key trade rules governing grain contacts and provide an overview of the Australian Grain Industry Code of Conduct.
This project is proudly supported by the SA Government, Regional Growth Fund, and delivered in partnership with Grain Trade Australia.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
NOTE: All workshops will have provisions in place to comply with the latest advice from SA Health to ensure the safety of attendees with respect to COVID-19. All attendees will be expected to check-in with the the venue and have their registration confirmation available for scanning upon arrival.
