More than half of the Queensland government’s million-dollar rescue package to the strawberry industry in the wake of the needle crisis will be spent on an awareness campaign.

The state government has allocated $1 million towards responding to the crisis, and on Wednesday revealed $600,000 would be spent on a “targeted campaign” while $250,000 has been allocated for safeguarding supply chain integrity.

Meanwhile $150,000 will be given to the Queensland Strawberry Growers Association and Growcom to allocate to producers affected by the crisis.
