This online engagement was hosted on YourSAy from 2 September to 25 October 2019. Below is a record of the engagement.
We want to hear what it will take to accelerate growth in our food, wine and agribusiness sectors with the goal to achieve 3% growth per annum.
What is being decided?
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 this plan, including the food, wine and agribusiness sector.
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.
The discussion paper 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.
How can your input influence the decision?
Your input will help shape a Food, Wine and Agribusiness Sector Plan to guide the future direction of the sector and unlock opportunities for growth and prosperity.

Food, wine and agribusiness is a key pillar of South Australia’s economy. It is central to our identity and will continue to drive our future economic prosperity.
The State Government has set an objective to lift the sustainable economic growth rate in the state to an average of 3% per year.
Growth State is the government’s work plan for growth – it is key to achieving economic growth and has a focus on creating more jobs, lowering costs and delivering better services.
The Growth State consists of policies, programs and projects collectively designed to lift the state’s competitiveness and attract investment, with a focus on export sectors across four broad streams of government action:
- trade and investment
- skills and innovation
- infrastructure and land
- water and the environment.
Food, wine and agribusiness is one of a nine priority sectors identified under Growth State.
Industry will work with government to establish measurable targets that will contribute to South Australia’s economic growth and identify the priority policies, programs and projects required to achieve the 3% growth target.
Consultation on the Food and Agribusiness Discussion Paper, which sets the scene on the sector as a whole and its contribution to the South Australian economy, will be carried out in three stages and is due for completion in early 2020.
Stage 1: June - July - Development of the draft Food, Wine and Agribusiness Discussion Paper
Stage 2: September - October - Consultation of the Food, Wine and Agribusiness Discussion Paper
Stage 3: Early 2020 - Implementation of the Food, Wine and Agribusiness Sector Plan.
