Healthy Food, Healthy People
The Greens recognise the importance of land-based primary production to our economies but expect land use to be sustainable and to contribute to other benefits obtained from land.

The Green Party believes food should be produced in ways that are healthy to humans, environmentally friendly, respectful to workers and animals, and that benefit biodiversity.
The Green Party wants an multi-part health system focused on wellness, improving people's health and living conditions, and reducing the risk of illness. Our health system needs to deliver a high standard of care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. The Greens will tackle the underlying causes of ill health. These include poor diet, poor education and poor quality housing.
