Local and international consumers are placing greater value on high quality food and wine.

Premium products are increasingly in demand.

Premium implies a sense of quality. Some people see premium as those products that have attracted accolades or awards. Others see premium for qualities such as:

  • freshness
  • high nutritional value
  • being locally produced
  • safety and quality assurance.
South Australia is known for its premium:
  • internationally acclaimed wines grown from some of the oldest vines in the world
  • seafood including highly sought-after tuna and rock lobster
  • grains, used in international beers, pastas and oils
  • local businesses producing top quality products direct to the consumer
  • food and wine festivals
  • tourist experiences.
Premium currently applies to many segments of South Australia’s food and wine industries. It is also an aspirational target for our state.

The priority seeks to capitalise on South Australia’s advantages to grow our local and global reputation for producing premium food, wine and other products.
