A new website showcases investment opportunities in Victoria’s agriculture and food processing industries.
The agriculture sector is vitally important to the Victorian economy and to regional Victoria.
The sector produces over $13.1 billion worth of milk, fruit, vegetables, meat, fibre, eggs and grains, and supports a $38.1 billion processed food industry.
These sectors directly employ around 180,000 people, and support many more indirect jobs in areas such as logistics, transport and advisory services.
Investment in our world-class agriculture sector is vital to ensuring that it continues to grow, boosting the Victorian economy and creating jobs across the state.
