Food Future agenda: sustainability indicator platform

This Regional Land Partnership funded project will develop and trial a single-audit multi-certification tool with leading viticulturists, orchardists & vegetable producers, and key industry stakeholders. Once developed, this tool can be utilised by farmers to demonstrate their sustainability credentials (environmental, social accountability, ethical, financial, food safety).

The project will:

  • provide consumers with traceability back down the supply chain so that they can make more informed purchasing decisions,
  • provide farmers with an opportunity to harness the purchasing power of consumers by identifying and responding to changing market signals,
  • increase farmers motivation for adopting leading sustainability practices,
  • allow farmers to benchmark adoption levels of sustainability practices, and
  • investigate an appropriate platform or interface between farmers and consumers, for this tool.
