A Marshall Liberal Government will back South Australian food producers by providing peak body Food SA with the financial support needed to support industry and jobs growth.
This will ensure Food SA can focus on growing markets, growing the capabilities of individual businesses and linking industry with export support.
Our additional support will also enable the creation of a Liaison Officer to work directly with businesses, supporting effective direction and access to government programs.
Food SA in an independent, industry-led and membership based organisation representing small, medium and large companies across South Australia’s food and beverage sector.
It represents producers, manufacturers, processors and service providers who are actively and successfully value-adding to their products.
In 2016/17 this industry generated almost $20 billion in revenue and our food and wine exports contributed almost half of South Australia’s total merchandise exports.
That’s why we will support Food SA’s vital contribution to the growth of our food and beverage industry and the creation of jobs and new export markets.
