NSW seafood businesses will be able to net a share in $500,000 worth of grants in a new push to drive further innovation across our local seafood industry.
Expressions of interest are officially open for the NSW Seafood Innovation Program which is aimed at creating more jobs and boosting the value of the sector. All proposals put forward must address one or more of the three key challenge areas including supply chain innovation, product innovation and product quality. The program will:
provide innovators with a new avenue to propose ideas and technologies to increase the value of NSW seafood
offer $10,000 in seed funding and expert advice to individuals, cooperatives and companies to develop their ideas
offer up to $130,000 in financial assistance and mentoring to scale a new product that is already advanced in development
identify ways to improve efficiency, services and outcomes for NSW fishers, fisheries and the seafood supply chain.
The Seafood Innovation Program has been developed by NSW DPI, in partnership with the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) and an industry-led steering committee, made up of members with experience in the NSW seafood industry, product development and innovation processes.
All interested businesses and individuals should register to receive updates on the Seafood Innovation Program.
