Agribusiness support welcome

11 February 2016

Tasmania’s peak farming body has welcomed the launch of the State Government’s Agribusiness Support Program.

TFGA CEO Peter Skillern said that energy consumption had continued to be a major expenditure for the State’s agricultural sector.

“A program like this will go some way towards assisting Tasmanian farmers through what has been a particularly tough year,’’ he said.

The TFGA looks forward to working with all parties to ensure that the agricultural business community continues reap the benefits from initiatives like these.
