Food, export & investment

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) supports the success of our State’s world-renowned agrifood sector which produces high-quality, safe and healthy agricultural, food and fibre products for domestic and international markets.

DAFWA also works to identify and develop international market opportunities for agrifood businesses and attract investment into the State.
