Food & beverages

The food and beverage industry in Western Australia services a number of high-value niche markets. As a result of stringent safety and quality systems these industries provide premium quality food and beverage products to customers throughout the world.

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia supports industry through collaboration with other state and national agencies, universities and private sector businesses. Through these networks we help drive increased opportunities through product innovation, investment attraction, development of value-added foods and meeting consumer demand. 

Using a supply chain approach, we help businesses to capitalise on opportunities by understanding relationships and constraints within their industries.
