Jon Condon, 03/06/2014

ALMGAN important national discussion on the future of environmental and animal welfare management verification and its impact on Australian agriculture’s prosperity and competitiveness will take place in Brisbane next week.

Changing market and consumer expectations on how food products are produced has intensified in recent months, heightening the need for a national environmental and animal welfare management system that can protect Australian markets and verify Australia’s food and fibre products.

The issue will be discussed at a symposium called ‘Innovation in Natural Resource and Animal Welfare Management – Agricultural Competitiveness’, to be held at Brisbane’s Rydges Southbank next Wednesday, June 11. The meeting starts at 9am.

The symposium, convened by the Australian Land Management Group*, will bring together key policy makers, landholders, representatives of the food and fibre supply chain and specialist interest groups to discuss environmental and animal welfare management.

It will identify how government, industry and community can work together to support, recognise and reward superior environmental and animal welfare management, ALMG said in a statement.

  • Contact point is ALMG chief executive, Tony Gleeson ph 0402 099 884.

 

* The ALMG is a not-for-profit organisation established by a group of progressive Australian landholders committed to responsible and sound environmental and animal welfare management that can be verified and recognised by government, the supply chain and consumers.
