2019 Northern Food Network Event Dates!

2019 Food Network Events in the North – Save the Dates

Due to a high level of interest in food and agri-business in Northern Tasmania, NTDC and RDA Tas established a Food Network in August in 2018. The aim is to connect businesses in the food and agricultural sectors so we can share experiences, knowledge, ideas, value-add to your business, and facilitate enquiries and connections.

The 2019 event dates are now released!
