Papaya market supply data capture and analysis

The overall objective of this project is the collection of production volumes of fresh red papaya and yellow paw paw in the main growing regions of North Queensland. These production figures, along with national market category wholesale and retail data, will be tallied to give production volumes for the tablelands and coastal areas.

The focus of the reports will estimate the weekly production volume in tonnes by asking transport companies to report total pallets sent to the main eastern seaboard markets, with the assumption that pallet weight represents approximately 800kg of fruit. By doing this, it will provide levy payers and industry stakeholders the opportunity to accurately identify actual production figures in the various North Queensland growing regions.
