The Traditional Owner-led Bush Products Sector continues to grow across northern Australia. It is largely comprised of enterprises that are underpinned by a cultural ethic and which are locally embedded (Maclean et al, 2019). These enterprises include those that engage in the development and sale of products that can be broadly defined as bush foods; native plant derived industries (seed harvesting, nurseries, cut flowers); and those involved in the development of botanicals-based products (e.g. bush medicines, essential oils, health and beauty products) (Woodward et al, 2019). Each of these types of enterprises develop products from the wild harvest, cultivation and/or enrichment planting of select native plants. As this research project has documented (see Woodward et al, 2019; Maclean et al, 2019) there is significant opportunity for investment in the development of this sector. This report constitutes the final deliverable for the CRCNA and CSIRO funded project ‘Building the Traditional Owner-led Bush Products Sector’ in northern Australia: The Strategic Sector Development and Research Priority Framework (including an Aboriginal supply chain, investment plan and research concept note to guide future research to support Sector growth). The Framework identifies key investment priorities and associated research requirements to support development of the Traditional Owner-led Bush Products Sector.
