ANIC aims to strengthen, unify and promote the production, marketing and consumption of nuts within Australia and internationally. The Council delivers efficiency to its members, providing support and removing duplication of effort.
Each of the nut-producing industries has a strong, well-organised producers’ association. Each industry is well supported by its growers in the planning and funding of farm research and marketing.
All operate on a single, national basis having avoided state or regionally segmented industry decision-making. All have a focus on maximising returns to growers by expanding horticultural skills and the market rather than protecting them. All have well-supported grower levies or voluntary contribution schemes to support the research and marketing at levy contribution rates at or near the highest in agriculture.
The Australian Nut Industry Council (ANIC) is a federation of the producing industries. Through ANIC, the nut industries can achieve what they cannot individually.
The Nuts for Life campaign is an initiative of ANIC. The campaign focuses on health professionals and consumers. Recent research shows that regular nut consumption as part of a healthy diet produces a significant reduction in body cholesterol and the risk of heart disease.
The well-supported, united, industry associations and the high research and marketing spend underpin the underlying strength of the Australian nut industry.
