Building on a strong history of development through research, Australian tea tree oil producers will vote in August on a proposal to implement a compulsory levy to secure research funding for future industry growth.
The proposed levy would initially be set at 25 cents per kilogram, with funds of up to $125,000 matched by the Australian Government, meeting a commitment in its Agricultural Competitiveness White Paper.
If the vote succeeds and Federal Parliament passes the legislation, the levy would be introduced from July 2017.
