Abstract Bush products provide one of few prospects for new or expanded natural resource-based enterprise activity by indigenous people of remote regions of arid central and tropical northern Australia. Realizing this potential requires development of effective certification or branding, functioning producer associations and joint ventures if returns to Aboriginal people are to improve. Nine steps are suggested as part of a strategy to address the challenges facing viable bush product enterprises.
Keywords Branding
Certification
