Grow your food and fibre future forum
Young food and fibre professionals and industry leaders came together on 27 March 2013 for the Grow Your Food and Fibre Future forum to discuss the opportunities out there for young people wanting to work in the food and fibre industry.
The forum was one of the outcomes from the Parliamentary Inquiry into the Capacity of the Farming Sector to Attract and Retain Young Farmers and Respond to an Ageing Workforce.
Actions from the forum were agreed to around the themes of:
- enhancing the image of agriculture
- creating career pathways
- facilitating mentoring and networks
- improving employment practices
- developing new models for business and finance.
