Australia's only Conference dedicated to City-Region Food Systems.

About this event

Did you know that improvements to our Food System could, for a city the size of Canberra, conservatively:

  • ​Generate up to 3,000 jobs for the local economy?
  • Reduce the city's grocery costs by $200 million?

On the 17th November 2020, Canberra played host to the RDA ACT Food in the Capital sustainable food conference program. Australia's only conference dedicated to city/region food systems, it was the first in a series set out to connect people from across the industry including farmers, food businesses and manufacturers, community groups, thought leaders and policy makers;On May 18, 2021 we hosted event 2 in the series, Food in the Capital 2. Held over two days, Day 1 was an exciting exploration of urban and regional farming, logistics and social enterprises. Day 2 our delegates saw food in action, choosing either the rural or peri-urban tour showcasing local producers in the Canberra region.

​On the 9th and 10th of August 2022 the story continues. We will be deep-diving into the topics that matter most to you, offering a blend of in-depth panel discussions, workshops and networking opportunities.

Be part of the story!
