The Sheep Industry Business Innovation (SIBI) project is made possible by the state government’s Royalties for Regions program. The project started in October 2015 and finishes in June 2018.
The Sheep Industry Business Innovation project is assisting the industry in building capacity to supply new markets for sheepmeat and live exports, particularly in nearby Asia and the Middle East – generating flow-on benefits to producers, industry, the regions, communities and the state economy. It will achieve this by transforming the sheep supply chain to develop customer focused products for target markets.
This involves the establishment of dedicated supply chains aligned to customer needs in new markets (predominantly international) as well as increasing business and technical skills of producers and processors in order to maximise their business’ efficiency, productivity and profitability to supply these new value chains.
