South Australia's premier food processing and food manufacturing precinct is underway in northern Adelaide.
The Northern Adelaide Food Park aims to grow the food industry in South Australia and maximise the advantages of South Australia's reputation for premium food and wine. The Food Park will generate economic growth in northern Adelaide by attracting new and expanding businesses. It will encourage innovation in the food industry by forging collaborative partnerships, economies of scale and knowledge sharing.
The premier food manufacturing and food processing hub will create opportunities for businesses to co-locate and enable both new and existing food and beverage processors, manufacturers, food packaging specialists, cold-chain suppliers, and logistic and transport companies to expand and grow.
New businesses locating at the Food Park are La Casa Del Formaggio and Auscold Logistics. Each of these companies are finalising their construction plans to build new facilities to support their business growth plans.
The businesses join a number of existing food businesses located at Edinburgh Parks including Coles, Inghams, Infuse Bottling Co and Comfresh.

The Food Park is being established at Edinburgh Parks in northern Adelaide – about 25 kilometres from Adelaide CBD.
The Edinburgh Parks site offers rapid development opportunities for businesses, multiple tenure options and well-serviced with the majority of base infrastructure already in place.
The site is considered to provide a cost competitive opportunity for local food and beverage processors, manufacturers, packaging and logistics businesses considering expanding their business or starting operations in northern Adelaide.
Businesses located at the Food Park will have access to a ultra high-speed internet connectivity as a result of the expansion of the Gigcity network. The development of a 15MW bioenergy plant for the northern suburbs also has the potential to connect to business located at the Food Park.
