Food Security

Australia needs a comprehensive strategic approach to protect, invest and grow our own food production resources. It is an integral part of our national security. 

Examples of what needs to be done:

  • Change competition laws to allow for the break up of companies that abuse their market power in their dealings with farmers
  • Establish a rural development bank that will make it easier for farmers to access finance.
  • Create incentives to invest in agriculture, including for our super funds
  • Overhaul and implement truthful food labelling laws. Our current laws that allow imported produce to be passed off as Australian are costing our farmers jobs
  • Scrap the punitive AQIS charges on small exporters that destroy incentives to export
