After years of COVID lockdowns and supply chain disruptions, people are more focused on where their food comes from than ever before. In fact, fluctuating food prices are a key contributor to cost-of-living concerns impacting many everyday Australians.
The ongoing success of the agriculture sector is critical not only for farmers and rural communities, but also for the countless consumers who are concerned about access to quality and affordable food and fibre. The upcoming state election provides a timely opportunity to put policies that bolster food security on the agenda.
We look forward to working with the next state government on progressing our policy priorities.
