The Kakadu Plum Provenance project will be explored at this event with a discussion on Indigenous Certification for Kakadu Plum supply chains.

About this event

The Northern Australia Aboriginal Kakadu Plum Alliance (NAAKPA)and ANSTO are hosting a half-day forum on Kakadu Plum Provenance and Indigenous Certification for Kakadu Plum supply chains. ANSTO will present the technology behind creating elemental fingerprints of Kakadu Plum and how fingerprints can be tied to specific geographic locations, as well as talk about the establishment of a reference Kakadu Plum Provenance Database.

The second part of the forum will present a model for Indigenous Certification around Kakadu Plum supply chains for discussion. Kakadu Plum (Gubinge) producers are invited to participate in the discussion, and their feedback is important for both the Kakadu Plum provenance Database and the Indigenous Certification for Kakadu Plum supply chains. It is also an opportunity for Gubinge producers to speak directly with ANSTO researchers and also to discuss Indigenous Certification and what might be the best model for the Kakadu Plum industry sector.
