This event supports Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) – Fair Food Week
With this year one of the themes – ‘Fair Food Farming’!
WHAT IS FAIR FOOD WEEK?
Despite growing concerns about the nutrition, safety, and ethics of the food we eat, some regulators are making it harder for Australian small-scale farmers to produce ethical, ecologically-sound, nutritious, and delicious food for their communities.
Food producers are copping the full brunt of abuse of power by regulators. The issues include: communities who want access to raw milk from local dairies, farms doing on-farm processing facing unfair and inconsistent regulation of their facilities, and many others grappling with outdated and illogical definitions in local planning schemes.
The time to defend the growing movement of small-scale food producers has come.
