The 'Follow the food trail all over Western Australia' food map can be used as a classroom resource for teaching students about the main types of food produced in different areas of Western Australia.

It was developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia and its Small Landholder Information Service and funded by Royalties for Regions. This project also supports the Buy West Eat Best food labelling program, which is supporting farming and food businesses across Western Australia.
