The Tassievore Eat Local Challenge is all about encouraging Tasmanians to enjoy local produce, support local businesses and grow some fruit and vegetables. The 2015 challenge was a great success with hundreds of Tasmanians participating and focusing their attention on discovering Tasmanian products and shops that support local producers.
Following the 2015 Challenge, 78% of participants reported improved knowledge of what Tasmanian products are available and where to get them, and 87% of respondents stated that they plan to continue eating more Tasmanian food than they did previously.
The Challenge is run each year by Sustainable Living Tasmania, in collaboration with the Heart Foundation, Eat Well Tasmania, Tasmanian Canteen Association, Urban Farming Tasmania, Produce to the People and the University of Tasmania.
