Formatted abstract This is an applied industrial and social history of the growth of the ginger industry in Queensland from 1916 to 1998. Though small quantities of ginger are grown in northern Queensland and northern New South Wales, the emphasis in this paper is on the commercial growing areas on the Sunshine Coast, between Caboolture and Gympie, especially Buderim and Yandina, where the factories were established.

The history covers the growth of the industry, its tourist potential and the social and the environmental impact it has had in the area. The values and limitations of cooperatives are examined and compared with those of a corporate structure.

The influences that various people, especially Geoff Shrapnel and Doris Crerar, have had on the industry are discussed in some detail.

The main argument throughout this paper is that the development of an export market for ginger was a turning point for the industry and that the maintenance of these markets are essential for the future growth of the industry.
