Survey of Food Production and Processing in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia

The Survey of Food Production and Processing in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia project was an initiative developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food Western Australia (DAFWA) and Regional Development Australia Great Southern WA Inc (RDA).

 

The main purpose of the project was to develop an understanding of the current and future capacity of the region's food production and processing capabilities. The information was gathered through a survey and interviews with farmers and food processors. You can find out more information and download the report Here.

 

Grass Fed Lamb Feasibility Study - China Survey

 

Recognising rising consumer interest in ethically-produced food, the Fitzgerald Biosphere Group has engaged the School of Business and Governance at Murdoch University to assess consumer preferences, possible markets, branding strategies and industry support for red meat products that have been raised naturally.

 

The project aims to quantitatively identify consumer attitudes and demand in WA and China and define a new brand to identify grass fed red meat, produced using best practise animal husbandry.

 

A detailed research report will be produced to specify market characteristics within the value chain, consumer decision making criteria, competition analysis and proposed strategies to enter and expand the Chinese market. A key feature of this project will be Chinese consumer surveys conducted in two major Chinese Cities. This work is partly sponsored by RDA Great Southern via our Agricultural subcommittee.
