The Australian Ginger Industry Association (AGIA) acts as a Peak Industry Body (PIB) representing a non-profit membership organisation.
We strive to achieve a world-leading position and recognition for producing ‘Food Safe Quality Ginger’.
Our Strategic Plan guides our future direction targeted at production, extension and advocacy for Australian ginger.
Our organisation consists of volunteer growers and part-time administration officer, Katarina Keating. Governance is overseen by a volunteer grower management committee and the Australian Government, AgriFutures Australia.
We were previously known as the Australian Ginger Growers Association (AGGA) which was formed in 2000 and became incorporated in 2004. In 2010 the name changed to AGIA to reflect the introduction of a grower funded research and development levy.
