Japan Registration Workshop

Are you interested in exporting fresh Hass avocados to Japan in the 2020/21 season?

Avocados Australia, the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) and the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) are hosting a special registration workshop on Wednesday, 24 June.

Avocados for the Japanese market must be sourced from officially recognised areas free from Queensland fruit fly:

  • Western Australia
  • the Riverland region in South Australia, and
  • Tasmania.

You can read more about the requirements from DAWE here.

There are two options for attending this workshop. You can attend in person at Manjimup (RSVPs essential to ensure physical distancing requirements can be adhered to) or online via Zoom.

In this 2.5 hour session, you will hear an industry overview from Avocados Australia, an overview of WA avocado exports and markets from DPIRD, and an overview of the Japan registration process and how to prepare for an audit from DAWE. Click here for the full agenda.
