FARM WEEKLY | GPA and GGL provide submission for food security inquiry

IT wouldn't be an over-statement to say Australia's food security is something that tends to be taken for granted by the general population.

Federal Agriculture Minister Murray Watt directed the House Standing Committee on Agriculture to commence an inquiry into food security in Australia in October last year.

Both of Australia's key grains representative bodies, GrainGrowers Limited (GGL) and Grain Producers Australia (GPA), provided submissions for the inquiry in December, which illustrate similar perspectives on where efforts should be focused to help strengthen and safeguard Australia's food security.

GPA chief executive Colin Bettles said developing more manufacturing onshore would help reduce the sector's over-reliance on overseas supply and make growers more profitable and sustainable.
