Eat Well Tasmania Inc. champions healthy eating and promotes opportunities to eat healthy Tasmanian grown, produced and value added food.
In 2016, the Eat Well Tasmania Inc. Board undertook a strategic review. Eat Well Tasmania Inc. is primarily focused on engaging with food and agriculture and aligned industries to encourage Tasmanians to enjoy our seasonal produce.
With our partners, we champion healthy eating and promote opportunities to enjoy Tasmanian seasonally grown, produced and valued added food.
Our consumer facing activities are predominantly via our social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Nearly half of all Australians say their food choices are influenced by what they see on social media. Our practical resources are used by community organisations and other health promotion programs
With industry and government our policy and partnership work seeks to promote opportunities for more Tasmanian food to be profiled in hospitality,agritourism, events, at farmgates and through local procurement.
Eat Well Tasmania Inc. is a not for profit organisation with DGR status.Please contact us for a copy of our prospectus for other campaigns and projects we are currently seeking funding for.
In Tasmania we grow, produce and value-add a very wide range of foods. This includes fruit and vegetables/legumes, dairy products, grains and cereals, and lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and nuts and seeds.
Currently approximately 22%1 of all the food produced in Tasmania is distributed and eaten within Tasmania.
We receive our core operational funding from the Department of Health and Human Services Tasmania. Through our work, we aim to improve the nutritional well-being of Tasmanian’s and contribute to reducing diet-related health issues. .
