Plant Initiated Projects Program (PIP’s)

Under the AMPC Plant Initiated Project (PIP) Program, AMPC allocates 25% of individual processor levies towards RD&E activities with direct involvement of the processing company and the research provider. This program aims to facilitate adoption of more fundamental research through practical trials in a commercial setting and ensure implementation and capability building in industry.

The AMPC PIP program is a proven highly effective mechanism for leveraging significant private investment directly into industry R&D programs. Previous reviews have indicated the PIP projects will continue to be strongly subscribed by a diversity of processing companies in both size and species across a broad range of R&D programs. Particularly in relation to identified key industry priority areas of building innovation capability and in the facilitated adoption of emerging technologies.

Available PIP funds are also aggregated and used collectively by groups of members on syndicated projects. Further accelerating innovation uptake and amplifying benefits delivered to the red meat industry and broader community from private, industry and government investment.
