The EU Delegation to Australia travelled to Tasmania to hear first-hand from local producers including, Patrick Maguire from the award-winning Sullivans Cove Distillery, who says the 'Tasmanian' brand is a strong selling point.

The EU is negotiating for strong geographical indications (GIs) to be included in the Free Trade Agreement with Australia. Why? Because GIs provide better prices for quality Australian goods, more jobs in regional areas and new export opportunities for consumers wanting high-quality products.
