The National Farmers' Federation has called for state and federal governments to revive domestic manufacturing and processing amid concerns the agriculture industry relies too heavily on countries like China.
Chief Executive Tony Mahar told Landline the COVID-19 disruption presented an opportunity to strengthen supply chains and regional economies. "We need to have the food and fibre value-adding and processing here in this country," he said.
Yep.....and perhaps extend that to processing meat here also????
