A new food gel application is now being developed by the NSW Government to make it easier for farmers to produce food for a growing number of Australians.
Key points:The product, called the FoodGel, is being developed for farmers by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM)Key points The application allows farmers to create food that is as healthy as possible without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilisers.
It also has a variety of health benefits such as helping to fight cancer, diabetes, obesity and depression.
Farmers are using the product to produce an estimated 80 per cent of the food consumed in Australia and are already experimenting with it.
But, the application is currently only available for a limited number of farms.
In its announcement, the Department said the Food Gel could be used for “healthful food products”.
“The food gel is made with the finest ingredients, from fresh ingredients and fresh, local raw materials, with no added chemicals,” the department said.
“It is safe for humans and pets, as well as the environment.”
The Food Gel was first introduced to the Australian farming community in the early 2000s and has since been a popular alternative to traditional agricultural practices.
In 2014, the federal government made it easier to grow and process food using the Food gel, which is used by a significant number of farmers to ensure they produce healthy food.
The application is a collaboration between the Department and the Australian Food Safety Authority (AFSA), which is responsible for enforcing the Food Safety and Standards Act.
The Agriculture Department and DAFM are working with the industry to develop the Food Gel and its range of health and nutritional benefits, according to a statement from the department.
“We are pleased that the DAFM has chosen to partner with the Department to develop a Food Gel product,” the statement read.
“The DAFM is working closely with the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Agriculture (DPIAA) to ensure the Food Gal is commercially available to farmers in New South Wales.”
Farmers can also apply to the department to have the product approved for commercial use, as it is now available to the public.
