Agricultural Trusts & Councils


Trusts provide the incentive and opportunity for industry sectors to lead, manage and finance their own development by providing partial funding for development activities. Trusts also help industry to establish partnerships with other parties who share their development priorities, making the most of available industry funds.


Industry councils work on promotion, market development, research and other activities that benefit their industry. A council is made up primarily of producers, but can include a minority of other industry representatives.
