Queenslanders are making the most of the state's produce, and now a champion of Queensland produce is set to be announced at the International Tropical Agriculture Conference gala dinner.

Following the success of the state government's #eatqld campaign, the winner will be announced at the dinner, which will be held on Tuesday, November 12, during the three-day conference.

The winner will also take part in a panel discussion after the announcement.

Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner, who will be presenting the winner on the night, said the Palaszczuk Government's #eatqld campaign showcased a world of flavour from the state of delicious.

"Produce from Queensland's vibrant and robust agriculture sector enjoys a well-earned global reputation as safe and nutritious and is synonymous with our lifestyle," Mr Furner said.

Mr Furner said the aim of the campaign was to encourage Queenslanders to chose the wide range of amazing produce from the state.

"There is always plenty in Queensland so whatever the occasion, whether you are catering for a family feast or buying for a restaurant, I encourage you to choose from the many locally-grown options to eat Queensland," he said.

"And when you enjoy a great bit of Queensland produce, snap it, share it and use the hashtag #eatqld."
