Western Australian food and beverage manufacturers have been invited to apply for the $7 million second round of the state’s Value Add Investment Grants program.
Grants under the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) program offer matched funding for agriculture, food and beverage companies under two project streams:
- Feasibility stream grants are between $30,000 and $100,000, and support projects to plan and de-risk companies’ potential future capital investments; and
- Capital investment stream grants are between $250,000 and $750,000 for assisting “expand, diversify or relocate value adding and processing operations to WA.”
According to a statement on Wednesday from state agriculture and food minister Alannah MacTiernan, the grants program was “helping WA food and beverage processors and manufacturers to pivot to the increasingly complex demands of today’s highly dynamic operating environment to forge new ways of doing business and capture opportunities.”
Feasibility stream applications close at 5 pm (AWST) June 8 and 5 pm (AWST) on June 22.
