Event description

Description

Modern consumers expect accurate information about the geographical origins of their food. Producers want protection against competitors who free ride on the hard-earned reputation of their unique products. The European model of GI protection pursues these twin goals, but has not been adopted in Australia, except in the wine industry. The Commissioner will address the European experience with GI registration and its competitive benefits for local agriculture. Academic speakers will address the debate about effective provenance protection more generally, and producers from Tasmania, King Island and the Granite Belt will speak about their experiences with provenance branding and fairly sharing the unique goodwill of special Australian regions. There will be a panel discussion and the opportunity to raise questions with the various speakers and participants.

Registrations and tea/coffee will be avilable from 8:30am.
