18 May 2021 | News

The conference plays an important role in showcasing the opportunities of the north, influencing policy creation, and attracting investment to the area.

The biennial Northern Australia Food Futures Conference, organized by NT Farmers Association, is now in its fourth year. The conference was established to promote the development of agriculture across northern Australia and to raise the profile of the northern region at a national level. 

The conference plays an important role in showcasing the opportunities of the north, influencing policy creation, and attracting investment to the area. 

The events focus on agriculture in the northern regions of Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and Queensland. Established and emerging agricultural sectors in the north are showcased and promoted at the conferences. 

The theme for Food Futures 2021 is Development and the Environment. A diverse range of presentations and workshops will be held with the objective of enhancing the development approvals process. The event will seek to: 

  • Improve two-way dialogue between industry and environmental groups
  • Improve industry’s understanding of environmental issues and impacts
  • Identify environmental and regulatory trends that will affect the industry
  • Inform industry and government on potential improvements/changes to the approvals process

The Food Futures program features a wide range of industry leaders and high-profile stakeholders. Organizations such as the National Farmers Federation, Cotton Australia, Hort Innovation, CSIRO, and Agrifutures have all participated in the conferences. Typically, over 50 speakers including successful farmers, traditional owners, environmental activists, Ministers, and scientists deliver unique insights into the industry. 

The NT Farmers Association also runs the successful Food Futures Roadshows that are held for alternate years to the conference. The roadshows are an opportunity to share conference insights, provide business networking opportunities, and attract investment to regional areas. We hope you can join us at the 2021 Northern Australia Food Futures Conference in Darwin from the 17th to 20th of May
