Growth State: our plan for prosperity is the State Government’s work plan to promote industry growth by responding to industry needs and leveraging South Australia’s competitive advantages.
Key sectors with strong growth prospects have been identified as part of Growth State, which includes the food, wine and agribusiness sector.
Food, Wine and Agribusiness Discussion Paper
Food and agribusiness is one of a nine target sectors identified in Growth State. It is central to South Australia’s identity and will continue to drive our future economic prosperity.
PIRSA has worked with peak industry bodies: Primary Producers SA, Food South Australia and the South Australian Wine Industry Association to develop a Food, Wine and Agribusiness Discussion Paper. This paper sets the scene on the sector as a whole and its contribution to the South Australian economy.
It covers food and beverage, field crops, meat and livestock, wine, seafood, horticulture and forestry sectors and the current growth statistics and measures for each industry.
Public consultation outcomes
The public consultation process for the Food, Wine and Agribusiness Discussion Paper took place during late 2019. This consultation formed the first step in the development of a whole of sector plan for these industries. During this process, a wide range of stakeholders from across the State had the opportunity to share their views.
Summaries have been prepared reflecting the key themes and feedback raised during these processes.
Summaries of the consultation will be shared soon.
