Agrifood and Beverage Vouchers open opportunities in WA

Agrifood and Beverage

Thirty Western Australian food and beverage businesses have received funding from the third round of the state government’s Agrifood and Beverage Voucher Program. 

The businesses from the South-West, Great Southern, Goldfields-Esperance, Mid-West, Peel, Wheatbelt and the Perth metropolitan area will share in $174,190, matched by recipient contributions. 

“This program has received great feedback from past recipients throughout the state who have used the investment to pursue new opportunities and develop new approaches,” WA Agriculture and Food minister Alannah MacTiernan said. 

“The initiative continues evolving to address opportunities and challenges facing WA businesses, while building resilience, sustainability, scale, competitiveness and export preparedness. The McGowan government is continuing to deliver for local agrifood businesses, backing their growth and supporting new economic opportunities across the state.” 

Recipients include businesses that produce baked goods, wine, specialty foods, manufactured meals, beverages, meats, confectionary, pasta, honey and eggs. 

Vouchers with a combined value of up to $15,000 per business will assist food producers to access professional business support services to help grow and develop their enterprises. 

A new category for environmental sustainability and social responsibility was added to the program in this round, complementing vouchers to improve business planning, manufacturing for business growth, sales and marketing, and financial health. 

Voucher applications support refining quality assurance, improving supply chain linkages and collaborations, expanding production, pursuing sustainability accreditation, biodiversity planning, website renovation, enhancing data collection, branding and marketing. 

More than 170 Western Australian agrifood and beverage enterprises have benefitted from the Agrifood and Beverage Voucher Program and the former Expert for a Day pilot program since 2018.
