Bush Products & the Law

Terri Janke and Company are excited to introduce a new unique workshop, Bush Products & the Law.

Protecting Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) in the Bush Products Industry

Bush Products & the Law is a new full-day workshop designed to provide entrepreneurs, businesses and community members with insight into managing Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) in the commercialisation of bush foods and related products.


The workshop provides insight on:

  • The Australian bush products industry;

  • Branding and Intellectual Property;

  • Protecting ICIP;

  • Commercialising bush products; and

  • Case studies (who & what is successful).

Who is it for?


This workshop is suitable for anyone seeking a better understanding of how to respectfully approach the use of ICIP when entering into or working in the bush foods and products industry. This may include researchers, business people, chefs, pharmacists, government representatives, and anyone interested in the commercialisation of Bush Products.

Participants will receive a summary paper for the workshop and have an opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A session. Lunch and refreshments are provided.
