Paddock to Plate: policy propositions for sustaining food and farming systems is the second and final phase of the Australian Conservation Foundation’s Future Food and Farming project.
The report puts 24 propositions to the Victorian Government, based on the premise that healthy environments, healthy farming systems and healthy people are intricately intertwined. The report looks at the activities and investments that will be needed if Victoria is to equip its food and farming systems to produce more healthy foods, more sustainably, in a much more difficult climate, while consuming less water, energy and soil, fewer nutrients and without damaging our biodiversity.
How can we improve the performance and resilience of the Victorian food and farming system? This propositions paper outlines policy suggestions that would substantially assist the Victorian food system in delivering healthier foods, healthier profits and healthier landscapes.
