Our Grounded Goals

The agriCULTURED Mission


Our mission is to disrupt the status quo and instigate thought-provoking dialogue around the agri-food sector. We aim to highlight issues, offer new perspectives, and encourage a shift from passive consumption to active engagement. It’s about inspiring a deeper appreciation for the journey of food, fostering a community that is curious, questioning, and fully aware of its food choices.


agriCULTURED is a vibrant platform that strengthens the bonds between producers, innovators, and consumers. We’re bridging gaps, building relationships, and fostering a sense of community in Tasmania’s agri-food sector. We’re creating opportunities for producers to share their passion, expertise, and the challenges they face, building empathy, understanding, and mutual respect.


In an increasingly globalised world, we aim to champion the local. By shortening the supply chain, we’re promoting fresher, healthier, and more sustainable food choices. Our mission extends beyond mere consumption – it’s about understanding, appreciating, and supporting the journey of food, from farm to table.


At agriCULTURED, we celebrate the relentless spirit of Tasmania’s agri-food sector. We are devoted to fostering growth, not just in crops, but in knowledge, relationships, and resilience. This journey is a tribute to the passion that fuels our farmers, the innovation that propels our sector, and the shared love for wholesome, delicious food. Through agriCULTURED, we’re growing together, celebrating together, and shaping the future together.
