WELCOME TO THE AUSTRALIAN GINGER INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
Australian Ginger Industry Association (AGIA) is an industry representative body and non-profit membership organisation that supports Australia’s ginger industry. By providing strong leadership and planning AGIA is guiding the industry towards a sound and viable future.
AGIA commissions and finances research that will improve production and boost consumption of ginger, helping members to remain viable and to thrive. AGIA has helped the Australian ginger industry achieve a world-leading position and world recognition for “Food Safe Quality Ginger”.
AGIA is focussed on building strong relationships with government, service providers and the community and shares information through workshops and field days. Members also have access to a ‘Member’s Only’ area on the website where they can view newsletters, research documents and industry information.
The Sunshine Coast region is the largest growing region and produces over 75% of Australia’s total ginger production. The region has 35 growers cultivating over 420 acres of land and annual production of ginger is estimated at 6075 tonnes per year. The Wide Bay–Burnett and North Queensland also feature prominently in Australian ginger’s growing history.
Nothing compare to the taste, texture and health benefits of ginger and nothing compares to the commitments of the Australian Ginger Industry Association to bring the very best ginger in the world to our super markets.
