WAFarmers welcomes the release of the Federal Government’s National Food Plan green paper and urges all WA producers to contribute to the process.
The green paper seeks views on possible future food policy options, including: Research and Development, Infrastructure, Land Use and Labour and Skills development.
WAFarmers welcomes these inclusions as they reflect comments made in our submission made to the National Food Plan Issues Paper in 2011.
A series of forums on the National Food Plan green paper will be held across Australia from today, with public consultation ending on 30 September 2012.
Those unable to attend a public meeting can contribute a written submission or participate in the National Food Plan blog discussion.
WAFarmers will be making a submission to the National Food Plan green paper as well as attending the Perth public meeting on Tuesday 21 August 2012.
