Food to Market is a $15 million commitment to bolster the Victoria’s agri-food supply chains. The program will support industry to invest in Victoria’s agri-food supply chain, providing funding of up to $1 million for eligible projects that deliver jobs, improve productivity and capitalise on new value-added opportunities.
The grants will be used by agri-food businesses to invest in equipment that diversifies their product line and adds value to locally-grown produce and markets. A range of project costs are eligible for funding including research and development for pilot projects, feasibility studies as well as investment in manufacturing plant and equipment. Applications are open to businesses as well as groups such as industry associations and marketing co-operatives.
Food to Market is proposed to be open until 30 June 2022 or until funding is expended, whichever is earliest.
