Demonstration of sustainable production of sheep meat and wool is critical to secure access to local and global markets. Customers want to feel confident that the food and fibre they purchase has been responsibly produced.
The Framework will assist industry to better understand its opportunities, challenges and impacts in key areas such as animal care, the agricultural landscape, economic resilience, and people and community.
The Framework will present evidence to our stakeholders that Australian sheep meat and wool has been produced responsibly in order to build trust and confidence in the industry.
It will demonstrate that Australia has a commitment to improvement and a clear path towards more sustainable practices where needed.
