Unique skills are required for cultivating, harvesting, processing and promoting Australian native and bush foods. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been cultivating and consuming Australian native foods for tens of thousands of years and play an important role in this rapidly growing activity and industry.
A draft skill set has been developed to capture the skills required to establish an Australian native and bush food business. It is intended to support the establishment of Australian native or bush food businesses, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander enterprises.
Input is invited to check that the skill set captures the requisite skills and is appropriate for the work it describes. Feedback is also welcomed about whether an additional skill set or skill sets are required.
For more information and to provide feedback, visit the project page.
There is an opportunity to register for a consultation webinar, where you will have the opportunity to discuss the skill set with the project team and other individuals from your industry. The webinar will be held on Tuesday 23 November 2021 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.
