Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Senator Richard Colbeck, welcomed National Agriculture Day on Wednesday and has encouraged Tasmanians to celebrate by buying local Tasmanian produce.
“For generations agriculture has been the backbone of Tasmania’s society and economy, and it is important we honour this important industry today,” Senator Colbeck said.
“I urge all Tasmanians to celebrate by buying Tasmanian produce at their local shop and enjoy the high-quality produce our farmers work hard to deliver to us every day.
“Tasmania is recognised as producing some of the best food and fibre in the world.”
