* A better and fairer farmgate price for our produce.
* Australian food back on our supermarket shelves and all food products to meet Australian standards.
* Industry support from our governments
* An independent review of the structures representing our industry
To stand together as rural Australians to be heard and to be able to support each other.
What quickly became apparent to all of us was that farmers across Australia, in all sorts of different agricultural industries, were suffering in much the same way; farmers were being expected to make do with whatever was left after all those up the supply chain had taken their cut. They weren’t leaving the farmer enough to survive.
Farmers from across the country contacted us to express their support for us raising our voices. We also have been getting support from people in cities who want to join us to get a better deal for farmers and to ensure the quality of food they are able to purchase in the cities.
What we have found is that agriculture needs to speak up about what we, the farmers, do for Australia. Government needs to change rules and regulations to make running a farm business easier and cheaper. Consumers need information to be able to influence what happens with their food with their food dollars.
Country and city need to come together to fight for the Australia we want; an Australia that looks after its farmers so the farmers can look after Australia.Dairy:
