Case Study 1: New Business Development

The project: A group of entrepreneurs identified a business opportunity to revitalise the Australian dried vine fruit industry. They needed help to commercialise the concept.

The solution: Support the entrepreneurial group through the entire process from idea to reality. This included:

  • Industry research
  • Strategy development
  • Obtaining Government grants to bolster business planning, technology development, export development and implementation of efficiencies.
  • Creating support from a local supply base
  • Gaining support of the industry body
  • Design and construction of the plant
  • Minimising production costs
  • Significantly enhancing product quality
  • Developing high value markets

The result: A dried vine fruit processing and marketing business was created from scratch. The business grew rapidly and was recognised globally for its superior quality product.
In a very short period of time turnover exceeded $10 million. Furthermore, a substantial export business flourished into Japan, Italy, Germany, Africa, the Netherlands and other countries.
