More than 300 people participated in World Food Day celebrations hosted by GCI, QAAFI and the School of Agriculture and Food Science on 16 October 2014.

Kicking off with a food industry breakfast, more than 50 people joined guest speakers from the bush food industry and UQ researchers to discuss how native foods will play a critical role in food security as the global population increases. QAAFI’s Dr Yasmina Sultanbawa spoke to ABC Rural at the event. Listen here…
