Tasmanian’s peak farming body has congratulated the state and federal governments for moving forward with Tasmanian Horticulture Market Growth Project.

TFGA CEO Peter Skillern said that project would be a welcome boost for the State’s agricultural sector, particularly those in the horticulture industry.

“Collaborative projects of this calibre will assist our industry meet State Government’s policy setting of expanding agricultural production in Tasmania to $10 billion dollars by 2050,’’ Mr Skillern said.

“The TFGA looks forward to working with all parties to ensure that the agricultural sector reaps the benefits from initiatives that stem from this project.”
