Tasmania’s Agri-Food Plan is based on the following principles:

  • Industry leadership
  • Market-driven development
  • Empowering the private sector – red tape reduction
  • Maximising the value of the primary industries sector to the Tasmanian    economy
  • Collaborative, integrated action
  • Social and environmental sustainability
  • Adaptability to emerging challenges and opportunities.

The Plan acknowledges that the private sector has a pivotal role in achieving continued growth in our agriculture, food and seafood sectors.

Reaching Tasmania’s agri-food potential clearly requires farmers, fishers, processors, industry sectors, agri-businesses, the community and all tiers of government working together.

For this reason the Tasmanian Government will continue to regularly engage with the private sector to deliver on our Agri-Food Plan, to develop future actions and policies, and to assign our resources.

We welcome proposals to work in partnership with industry on initiatives that align with grow, make, protect and deliver on one or more of the investment, productivity or careers drivers.


The Tasmanian Government will continue to monitor and report on the growth in the State’s primary industry sectors through publishing the annual Tasmanian Agri-Food Scorecard.

The latest Scorecard is available from the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment website http://dpipwe.tas.gov.au/agriculture/facts-figures
