The Passionfruit Australia office is currently run from Brisbane, Queensland.

Associate Members receive a 20% discount on advertising packages which include more than one advertising insertion.
A small group of passionfruit growers got together back in the 1980’s in northern NSW and formed a loose association which became the foundations of the original association – Australian Passionfruit Industry Association (APIA). Years later and with many more members in tow, Passionfruit Australia Inc. was born, and as the peak industry body, strives to represent the interests of all commercial passionfruit growers in Australia today.
The money raised each year from PAI membership goes to running the office and ensuring we are an accessible first point of contact for all passionfruit industry members.
