We support the efficient, effective and legitimate, commercial development of the intellectual property rights in the proprietary fruit varieties held by its members.
We help all members of the fruit supply chain (growers, packers, marketers and retailers) understand the benefits and obligations of producing fruit of proprietary cultivars.
We assist all members of the supply chain to validate the legitimacy of the trees and fruit produced through inexpensive desktop audits and related certification.
About Fruit Rights Australia
Fruit Rights Australia Inc. (“FRA”) was established in Febuary 2014 by a number of major variety rights holders in the summerfruit industry to help combat illegal use of proprietary varieties in the Australian fruit industry in general. The current members (in alphabetical order) are: Graham’s Factree Pty Ltd, Montague Fresh (Aust.) Pty Ltd, Mossmont Stone Fruit Importers Pty Ltd, QFM Variety Management Pty Ltd and Sun World International LLC.
After a substantial number of audits, FRA has now audited around 70% of new summerfruit trees sold by legitimate nurseries relative to FRA members since 2010. It is our intention to expand auditing services to other tree and vine industries.
