Recipients of Round 3 of the Agrifood and Beverage Voucher Program were announced on 18 March 2022.

Western Australian food and beverage manufacturing and processing businesses can apply for up to two vouchers with a maximum combined value up to $15 000 to engage a consultant or technical expert to help grow their business.

The Agrifood and Beverage Voucher Program supports small businesses across regional and metropolitan WA to access expert advice to build resilience and sustainability, competitiveness, scale and export preparedness into their operations.

The Program has helped to transform agrifood and beverage businesses that use locally sourced products – generating jobs and flow on benefits to industry, communities and the State economy. Check out comments from previous participants of the program who redeemed vouchers to grow and expand their businesses.
