Priorities & performance

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia has set a range of priorities to grow and protect Western Australia’s agriculture and food sector. We work collaboratively with the public and private sectors to meet these priorities and are committed to measuring, reviewing and improving our performance.

DAFWA has a three-year strategic plan that outlines our priorities and how we will work with industries and businesses throughout the agriculture and food supply chain to capitalise on opportunities and overcome obstacles.

Our overarching priorities are to grow markets, profitability, productivity and people – all underpinned by a commitment to boost biosecurity and sustain the state’s natural resources.

We also work with the state government on major initiatives to help ensure the long-term success of WA’s agriculture and food sector.

Our performance in meeting our priorities and state government goals is outlined in our department’s annual report.
