Small Agricultural Enterprise Logistics
Download the Small Agricultural Enterprise Logistics Report
This project led by RDA Central West, identified issues and challenges in the logistics supply chain for small agri-food producers in the region, and identified possible business solutions.
It involved bringing together local producers, buyers and regional freight operators in an incubator-style workshop facilitated by Victoria University, and resulted in three regional producers forming a collaborative business model called Central West Fresh.
Central West Fresh has received $130,000 in funding from the national Farm Co-operatives and Collaboration pilot program, known as Farming Together, to make it a reality.
The initiative was a response to one of the key findings from the 2016 Value Adding to Agriculture in Central West NSW report that found connectivity to market was a key challenge for the region.
