Here at TIA, we want to make sure our research is what people need, and that it supports the goals of Tasmanian farmers, and food and beverage manufacturers.
Through the TasAgFuture project, Government, industry and TIA will better understand the research, development and extension (RD&E) needs for the sector.
The core of this project is engaging with the Tasmanian agriculture and food community. Throughout 2017 and 2018, we conducted 100 detailed conversations at kitchen tables and boardrooms, and a wide-reaching survey for anyone working in food production and processing, that received over 600 responses.
Our next step is stakeholder workshops to be held in late 2019, bringing together key members from research, industry, government and community to discuss and define approaches and solutions for the future of Tasmanian agriculture.
