Native foods and botanicals are an important group of opportunities in the new and emerging industry arena

Native foods and botanicals are an important group of opportunities in the new and emerging industry arena. All new industries face a number of challenges, some of which include securing investment, developing product quality and quantity, developing markets and supply chains, and establishing industry leadership. Native foods and botanicals can bring an element of traditional knowledge and an opportunity to develop inclusive business models with indigenous Australians. This project was developed to help us understand how best to build such inclusive business models to make the most of these opportunities as we build new value chains with emerging industries.
This report uses Kakadu Plum, one of 6,500 native foods in Australia, as a case study to explore emerging business models for the native foods industry and agriculture more broadly. Findings are built on Indigenous knowledge, our rich agricultural past in Australia and international examples.
