Australian Sandalwood Co-op

Posted in: 
Sustainable Industries

The Australian Sandalwood Network is an active growers group dedicated towards developing the Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) plantation industry Australia wide. Our main focus is to support private sandalwood growers and drive the plantation industry forward and take Sandalwood to the international stage. The establishment of a Co-Operative will develop a plantation industry that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable, and will generate and maintain benefits for both present and future generations.

CONSISTENT SUPPLY
At present very little is factually known about the private sandalwood crop. The ASN would like to compile this information in order to understand where the industry is at and where it might be heading. This will give us some idea of supply that will come on stream in 5, 10 and 20 years time.

QUALITY CONTROL
A grading standard for plantation wood, given that the quality of plantation wood in the future may vary considerably from wild wood.

COLLABORATION
A co-op will provide growers with a central, convenient & trustworthy point of sale for their product.
Every member of the co-op will have a say in the projects undertaken via a vote.
