Here’s an idea worth mulling over
What would it take for Tasmania to be recognised internationally as a go-to region of excellence for the design, production and marketing of fine food and drink?

Over the past few months, a group of industry professionals and researchers has been developing this idea. We see a great opportunity for Tasmania to capitalise on our State’s growing reputation as a producer of world-class food and drinks that all have a focussed point of difference – the skilled application of fermentation. It’s an ever growing list – beers, breads, cheeses, ciders, pickles and preserves, meats, miso, whiskies, wines, yoghurts . . .

We want to accelerate this transformation to a fine foods-regional foods future and capture more of the associated value and benefits in Tasmania.

We’re working on the exciting proposition that together Tasmanian industry, academia and government can establish a world-class Fermentation Centre for:
Developing new products for your business,
Training your current and future staff,
Conducting research to benefit our industries, and
Coordinating consumer education, short courses and other experiences as a tourist drawcard.

We’d love to know what you think about:
What could this mean for your business?

What could this mean for your region?
What could this mean for our State?
How could we do it?
