An ambitious industry-led plan to grow South Australia’s food, wine and agribusiness sectors to $23 billion by 2030 has been launched.

The joint industry and government Food, Wine and Agribusiness sector plan forms part of the State Government’s Growth State initiative and sets out a clear pathway to accelerate economic growth through expansion and innovation.

Development of the plan is the culmination of 18 months of work and consultation led by industry partners Primary Producers South Australia, the South Australian Wine Industry Association (SAWIA) and Food South Australia in partnership with the Department of Primary Industries and Regions and the Department of Trade and Investment.

The plan to grow the sector to $23 billion by 2030 focuses on six key components:

  • Grow Productivity
  • Grow People
  • Grow Infrastructure
  • Grow Markets
  • Grow Sustainability
  • Grow the Operating Environment

The food, wine and agribusiness sector is the backbone of the state’s economy and the state’s largest export sector. It will also be a key driver of economic recovery from the impacts of COVID-19.

This plan’s target of $23 billion by 2030 will support the achievement of the Growth State target of lifting growth in the South Australian economy to three per cent per annum.
