The Western Australian Government is committed to growing internationally competitive food, beverage and agribusinesses. The $1.5 million Value Add Agribusiness Investment Attraction Fund supports investment in value added processing that can create jobs and deliver benefits in regional Western Australia.
These grants are also available to international agribusinesses looking to establish value adding operations in our state.
Stream one ($1 million) makes grants available up to $300,000 towards capital expenditure by businesses to invest in expansion, relocation or new value adding production facilities. Grants may be up to 50 per cent of the value of the total investment.
Stream two ($500,000) makes grants available up to $100,000 towards the cost of de-risking agribusiness investment in expansion, relocation or new value adding production facilities and may cover costs associated with feasibility studies, business plans, obtaining regulatory approvals
and other services necessary to support an investment decision.
