Western Australia’s (WA) agriculture and food industry is poised for global expansion – now is the time to invest.

WA has an extensive agriculture base. Our diverse climate regions and vast natural resources allow for the production of a wide range of high quality produce.

By 2030, Asia’s middle class is forecast to reach three billion and these discerning consumers will demand safe, clean and healthy food.

WA’s location, strong links with Asia and preferential market access via Australia’s free trade agreements, combined with our exceptional environmental credentials and stringent biosecurity systems, places our State in a unique position to capitalise on this growing market.

There is significant scope for investment to further develop WA’s food production capacity and provide innovative processing and logistics solutions to deliver premium quality foods for export.

The experienced team of professionals brings together businesses, government and industry to facilitate investment into agribusiness and food projects.
