26 Mar 2019

National industry body Cider Australia has opened tickets sales for the national cider conference to be held in Hobart, Tasmania from 2-5 June 2019.
President of Cider Australia and co-founder of Willie Smith’s Cider Makers, Sam Reid, acknowledged the support of the Tasmanian Government in bringing AusCider 2019 to Hobart. 
‘It is encouraging that the Tasmanian Government sees a strong future for the Australian cider industry, which is already an important contributor to the local Tasmanian economy and a burgeoning source of inspiration for the research sector’, Mr Reid said. 
‘AusCider 2019 has an impressive line-up of presenters including keynote speaker Jane Peyton, the UK’s first accredited pommelier and an award-winning drinks educator’, said Mr Reid. 
‘In addition to the key theme of cider and food matching, speakers will discuss value chain analysis and orchard establishment – priority programs under the newly established Australian Cider Research and Development Group (ACRAD) – and other cutting-edge topics in cider’. 
The AusCider 2019 conference will take place in Hobart, Tasmania with site visits and events in other regions of the state. The conference brings together cider producers, fruit growers, researchers and cider industry representatives from across Australia and overseas and coincides with the annual conference of Fruit Growers Tasmania.
