- ABC Radio National, in association with the Australian Government, is helping to bring the issues affecting the Australian agricultural industry to the fore, when we present AgTalks this month.
Anyone who is passionate about food, food production and agriculture is invited to attend a live panel discussion and audience Q and Aheld in the ABC Iwaki Auditorium, Southbank, Melbourne on 22 November at 7pm. The discussion will also be broadcast by Bush Telegraph on 26 November at 11am. A podcast will be available on the RN website after broadcast.
The panel will respond to the statement: Australians don’t care where their food comes from, as long as it’s cheap and looks good.
Hosted by ABC Radio National Bush Telegraph presenter, Cameron Wilson, the panel includes:
John Durkan – Merchandise Director, Coles
- Dr Andrew Monk – Director, Biological Farmers Australia
- Jane Adams – National Representative, Farmers’ Markets Association
- Judith Damiani – CEO, Citrus Australia
- Dougal Gordon – CEO, Australian Lot Feeders’Association
- Steve Spencer – Director, Fresh Logic
Part of the government’s mission to engage with industries, communities and consumers on agricultural issues, the discussion—along with six very different points of view—will bring attention to the issues the agricultural and food industries are currently facing.
We think the event is relevant to your organisation and its interests, and we would be grateful if you could let your friends and supporters know about the event and broadcast.
