Regional Reports


Mareeba and Dimbulah

Harvest of Kensington Pride, Calypso, R2E2 are finishing, but there are still good volumes of Honey Gold being harvested. Growers have commenced picking Keitts and these are starting to appear in the markets. We anticipate Keitts will be picked during late January and early February, with other varieties commencing harvest though this period, such as Brooks which will commence in late February.

South East and Central Queensland

Good volumes of Calypso and Honey Gold have been harvested over the past week. Kensington Pride and R2E2 volumes should remain steady for another week. Late season varieties will continue to be harvested this week and into February.
The AMIA team will add to these regional descriptions as more information becomes available.

Crop Flow

Last week’s dispatched tray volumes from Mareeba/Dimbulah and South East and Central Queensland: 242,942 trays.

Hong Kong and Singapore

I recently visited Hong Kong and Singapore to meet with retailers, importers and government representatives involved in our 2016/17 promotional campaigns. The trip enabled a first-hand experience of how the individual activities including a mix of in store sampling, point of sale material, advertising, and sales incentive competition were being executed.
In addition it provided the opportunity for constructive feedback and conversation around how we can improve our performance in both markets. 
The campaigns will be finished in early February and a full report including recommendations for next year will be completed by early March.
