How can we grow our food, wine and agribusiness sectors?

We have 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.

Read the discussion paper and let us know what does growth look like for your business by commenting below.

As an exporter not even able to export out of SA, there needs to be a lot more done, cost of freight is a small barrier for us but distance and opportunity to do this well is prohibitive in SA.
As a company we would employ SA people, and move our head office back here instead of QLD.
We are proud South Aussies and it stings (not only our pockets in freight) but our sense of state pride that we are doing great business out of SA

Thanks for getting in touch. Will jump onto the feedback form and complete

As an emerging exporter I am astounded at the cost of getting a Shipping Container from my factory onto a ship at Port Adelaide.
$650 cartage. That's how much it costs in sea freight to Malaysia. $140 to verify its weight. $660 to lift it from the wharf onto the ship.
No wonder we can't compete.
