ABSTRACT

Agriculture, aquaculture and food production are significant contributors to the Tasmanian economy. There are a range of challenges in quantifying the value of food production at the state level, including an absence of data on the value of processed food and interstate trade. The Tasmanian Agri-Food ScoreCard employs a methodology that fills some of these data gaps and reports a range of information, including the value of agri-food production along the value chain and the market destinations into which products are sold.
