Value Chain Innovation Programme change of date. 

The start date for the Value Chain Innovation Programme is changing.  

Due to the acceleration of the current Covid outbreak, it will be challenging to deliver the Value Chain Innovation Programme to the high standard we require, and participants expect.  

The decision has therefore been made to shift the start date for this programme.  

To build in sufficient time to allow industry, stakeholders, and Rural Leaders, to establish more certainty regarding the current outbreak, a new date has been set for later this year.   

The new dates are: 
Value Chain Immersion Tour (2 weeks)  
Sunday, 18 September to Friday, 30 September 2022.  

Value Chain Innovation Report.  
Due mid to late October 2022.  

Virtual Zoom Masterclass (2 hours)  
Early September 2022.  

Applications close Sunday, 10 July 2022.  

Programme reserve date for early 2023. 
We also have a reserve date in place for early in 2023, should it be required. Let’s hope it’s not. 

The reserve dates are: 
Value Chain Immersion Tour (2 weeks)  
Sunday, 15 January to Friday, 27 January 2023.  

Value Chain Innovation Report.  
Due mid to late February 2023.  

Virtual Zoom Masterclass (2 hours)  
Early to mid-December 2022. (We will complete the Masterclass prior to Christmas to allow thinking time before the tour begins in January).
