Table grape Strategic Investment Plan 2017-2021

Table grape SIP at a glance

 Table grape SIP

The table grape Strategic Investment Plan (SIP) will help guide Hort Innovation’s oversight and management of investment programs for the table grape industry over the next five years. It lays the foundation for decision-making in levy investments and represents the balanced interests of the industry. The very important function of the SIP is to ensure levy investment decisions align with industry priorities.

The SIP was developed through a process of consultation, drafting, validation, stakeholder feedback as well as final approval by Hort Innovation’s Board. The process involved consultation meetings (detailed below) and online validation, giving table grape growers opportunity to provide input and feedback.
