The Queensland Government has named Beef Australia Chairman Bryce Camm the state’s 20th #eatqld Champion.
Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries and Minister for Rural Communities Mark Furner said Mr Camm was truly a steering force for the beef industry.
“To say Bryce Camm is passionate about Queensland’s beef industry is, to say the very least, a gross understatement,” Mr Furner.
“Bryce is a dynamic fourth-generation cattleman who is the Chief Executive Officer of his family’s Camm Agricultural Group, Chairman of the Australian Beef Sustainability Steering Group, Chairman of the Australian Lot Feeders Association and Chairman of Beef Australia.
“At just 36 years old Bryce represents the future of the beef industry and with his vision and drive there is no doubt it is in very good and capable hands and looking very bullish indeed.
“Bryce’s example is truly inspirational and he will be a fine ambassador promoting Queensland’s world of flavour from the state of delicious.”
Mr Furner said there was no better time to acknowledge Mr Camm’s devotion to Queensland’s beef industry than during Beef Australia 2021 in Rockhampton.
“I am delighted to take this rare opportunity to recognise Bryce’s sizzling contribution to the beef industry during Beef Australia 2021 which showcases to the world the very best of Queensland’s world-class beef,” Mr Furner said.
“Bryce has long been involved in organising and running Beef Australia events and has been instrumental in organising symposium and seminar programs, signature programs including the Graeme Acton Beef Connections Program, and Pitch in the Paddock concept.
“I am sure Queensland’s beef industry, and all Queenslanders, will join me in saying well done to Bryce for both his tireless efforts and being named our latest #eatqld Champion.”
Mr Furner said the Queensland Government’s #eatqld campaign encouraged the community to eat local, stay healthy and support jobs in the state’s agricultural sector.
“Agriculture is going to play a vital part as we implement Queensland’s Economic Recovery Plan, and with Queensland beef we are working with the world’s best,” Mr Furner said.
“Our produce is second to none. We are urging everybody to explore Queensland-grown food and when you do, we ask that you take a photograph and share it online using the hashtag #eatqld.”
“By eating Queensland-produced meat, seafood, fruit, nuts and veggies you support everybody that brings that food to your table.”
Previous #eatqld Champions include Creek to Coast host Scott Hillier, Walkamin entrepreneur Krista Watkins, Bowen horticulturalist Carl Walker, leading chef Dominique Rizzo, Aussie Seafood House owner Ian Hamilton, and Scenic Rim dairy farmer and agritourism advocate Kay Tommerup.
