This project will aim to provide a model for the valueadding of tropical fruits to increase markets, using jackfruit (primarily)as a case. The bulk of the study will be a desktop analysis of the uses of jackfruit overseas and possibilities for using jackfruit in Australia including routes to market for the produce. Some sampling, analysis and trials will be undertaken to establish “routestovalueadding” as a part of the study. A desktop study will be undertaken as part of the research.

The aim of project is to break down and analyse value adding and market opportunities for tropical fruits using a case study. While jackfruit will be the focus of this study, readers and other industry groups will be able to apply aspects to other tropical fruits. Jackfruit is one of the hardest case studies to undertake to promote to the Australian market, other fruits by comparison should be a lot easier in comparison for other industry grower groups.
