Introduction

Fresh fruit and vegetable export requirements: A guide for Australian business provides an overview of the pathways to market for exporters of fresh fruit and vegetables.

It describes the three main export stages — Preparation, Shipping and In Market — and the requirements that may need to be considered and met for each stage.

The aim of the guide is to ensure Australian businesses are aware of and comply with key export requirements and regulations, so they may have a safe and smooth export experience.

Fresh fruit and vegetable export requirements: A guide for Australian business is jointly produced by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) and the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, with assistance from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Hort Innovation, the Australian Horticultural Exporters' and Importers' Association and the Export Council of Australia.
