The Pearl Consortium IPA was established in 2011 and currently extends until 2021. The IPA is headed by the Paspaley Group that represents a consortium of eight pearling companies that have co-invested directly with FRDC to improve existing production technology and develop new technologies. This partnership has proved to be very beneficial, with significant progress made in a number of areas that have been implemented to improve industry performance.
