~ Australian Pomegranate Association ~

– The Australian Pomegranate Association is the peak body representing and promoting the pomegranate industry in Australia –

APA provides a central focus for addressing and responding to issues with growing, supplying and enjoying this fascinating fruit.

The APA aims to support the development of the Australian emerging pomegranate industry by representing all parts of the value chain. Collaboration is the key to developing a strong and profitable industry for all sectors including research and development, nurseries, growers, packaging and storage facilities, distributors, processors, retailers and exporters. We welcome new membership applications from the whole of industry.

The new APA executive committee is focused on developing initiatives to tackle high priority issues. Providing standards for best practice in all aspects of pomegranate production will ensure high quality control for Australian pomegranates. Establishing specifications for supermarkets which suit our local fruit is a current priority.  Advocating and representing members with a unified voice will help the industry to garner Government support. Developing a sound strategic plan is our first major project.
