The Food Futures Conference is a national conference held by the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA). The PHAA is once again highlighting the centrality of food in everyone’s lives, poor dietary choices is one of the leading causes of the burden of chronic diseases, and the urgent need for sustainable and equitable food systems and provisioning. Food Futures I & II set out comprehensive national agendas to consider these issues but limited progress has been made since 2012. The 2018 conference will challenge professionals, organisations and governments to explore core food issues and recognise that how we deal with the food agenda will shape our futures.
