A rich data base from which Clarence Valley Food Inc can:

Needs to be addressed

The project addresses the need to acquire extensive information so Clarence Valley Food Inc can use evidence based research when applying for funding for future projects. What information is available we as a group are not allowed to access because of laws around releasing third party information. There has been no mapping out of the entire sector here in the Clarence Valley.
