Nuffield Australia 2014 Scholarship winner
Tania Chapman, from Mildura in Victoria, received a 2014 Nuffield Scholarship, supported by Rabobank.
Tania researched citrus varieties grown around the world to assess suitability for Australian growing conditions, cost efficiency of production, and market opportunities they may create.
With her family, Tania owns and operates a 140‐hectare citrus property south of Mildura, producing Navel oranges predominantly for export and Valencia oranges for the export, domestic and juice markets.
Tania’s key role in the business is in financial and marketing, with responsibility for the quality assurance program, Maximum Residue Limits and other protocols to ensure that they can export to as many markets as possible – currently Mildura Fruit Company exports to 32 countries worldwide.
Tania researched varieties grown in various countries to see if they are not just suitable for Australian growing conditions, but can also be produced cost‐efficiently, as some varieties require a lot more manual work during the production process.
Tania’s itinerary included China, the USA, Spain and Japan.
