The Tea Tree Oil Program aims to support the continued development of an environmentally sustainable and profitable Australian tea tree oil industry that has established international leadership in marketing, value-adding, product reliability and production. There are four program objectives. These are: • Enhancing production systems to maintain the competitiveness of Australian growers • Identifying regulatory regimes and market barriers, and enhancing the ability of industry to meet safety standards • Demonstrating proof of concept/efficacy for innovative applications of tea tree oil • Fostering communication that increases understanding and thereby encourages greater use of tea tree oil.
