Submissions received on the issues paper
Thank you for your interest in the development of a national food plan.
The Issues paper to inform the development of a national food plan was developed by the Australian Government to start the community discussion about our food and the issues affecting it. The Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Senator the Hon. Joe Ludwig when he released the issues paper on 23 June 2011, invited submissions from stakeholders on what a food plan should aim to achieve. Public submissions closed at 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time, Friday 2 September 2011, with the government receiving 279 submissions. The Australian Government is drawing upon these submissions to inform the development of a national food plan.
