Feeding Tasmania

Our food future

Presented in partnership with the University of Tasmania’s Island of Ideas public talks series.

Taste and talk

Enjoy a taste of complimentary Tasmanian food and wine, and think about our food future with a panel of innovators.

With the world population estimated to reach 10 billion by 2050, there is an urgent need to address the growing demand in food production. But how do we feed a growing population while maintaining or improving Tasmania’s land and water quality for future generations? How do we create food systems that mitigate climate-related threats such as fire, flood and drought?

Join the experts to discover how leaders in the Tasmanian food industry are innovating to shape a future where we care for our land and waterways and build a resilient food system.
