Food and Fibre to Market (FF2M) – Industry Partnerships Program
The Queensland Government's Food and Fibre to Market (FF2M) – Industry Partnerships Program offers matched funding of between $50,000 and $100,000 to grow our food and fibre exports to international markets.
Recipients of partnership funding
We are providing $600,000 to industry partners to co-fund supply chain and market development projects totalling $1.7 million from 2023 to 2025.
The projects seek to strengthen and deepen the shared knowledge and expertise of Queensland’s agricultural supply chain partners—growers, exporters, importers and retailers.
The 8 FF2M collaborative projects are with:
- Avocados Australia - to further develop its Shepard avocado supply chains to Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore

- Australian Macadamia Society - to develop and implement an Australian macadamia festival in India
- Australian Mango Industry Association - to further develop mango industry supply chains to the United States of America by improving growers’ export capability
- North Queensland’s Daintree Fresh and its supply chain partners - to trial a new, sweet, white-fleshed melon, Emperor’s Pearl, for the Japanese market
- Persimmons Australia - to map supply chains and undertake trial shipments of persimmons to Southeast Asian markets and build growers’ export capability
- Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise in partnership with Meat & Livestock Australia - to increase Queensland’s market share of grain-fed beef in the United States of America
