Opportunities within the agricultural sector are constantly evolving.
We see consumers hungry for new products and changing requirements and expectations for food production.
You only have to look at shifting attitudes about eating meat to see how quickly things evolve.
And that is one of the reasons I think it is vital that Australia continues to invest in our emerging agricultural and food production industries.
We have to be nurturing emerging industries and helping them to get established, so that some of our now fledgling industries can make big economic contributions in the near future.
It is indeed key to Australia’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors meeting the target of $100 billion in farm gate output by 2030.
