The National Traceability Summit will be held over four half-days on 7-8 & 11–12 April 2022. Producers, exporters, researchers, government and industry will take stock of the agricultural traceability work already underway and confirm the pathway forward to becoming a world leader in traceability. This is not just a summit. It's the start of an ongoing opportunity for us to ensure all industry voices are heard and turned into traceability action.
In 2021, we spoke with farmers, producers, agribusiness owners, exporters, researchers, innovators, grantees and many more. They shared their views on what the future of traceability could look like and the challenges they currently face. Watch the video above and hear a recount of what they said.
We invite you join us for the opening and closing sessions of the summit.

About the Agricultural Traceability Alliance and the National Traceability Hub
A new Agricultural Traceability Alliance and National Traceability Hub will help to strengthen and accelerate Australia’s traceability system and capabilities.
Agricultural Traceability Alliance
The Alliance aims to establish a coalition of stakeholders, consisting of industry members who have an invested interest in national traceability such as farmers and producers, agribusiness, exporters and agritech. It aims to ensure strong industry and cross-jurisdictional engagement and provide the right foundations for traceability initiatives to be successful. It will also translate policy into practice across the entire supply chain.
National Agricultural Traceability Hub
The Hub will provide a virtual space for industry groups, research bodies, state and territory bodies and government to collaboratively develop and drive successful traceability initiatives. It will provide central coordination for all groups and act as a centre of innovation for emerging traceability technology, practices, and standards.
Together, the Alliance and the Hub will work to optimise traceability by unlocking digital capability, establishing common data standards, and reducing regulatory burdens. They will be launched at the National Agricultural Traceability Summit and more details will be forthcoming.
