FOOD AND BEVERAGE CAPABILITY GUIDE SET TO SHOWCASE KIMBERLEY PRODUCE

Calling all food and beverage producers in the Kimberley, from East to West.

Food and beverage producers of the Kimberley are invited to promote their product range in a comprehensive Kimberley Food and Beverage Capability Guide to be produced by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) in partnership with the Kimberley Development Commission (KDC) and Kimberley based Mangoes Marketing.

To be released in late 2020, the guide will feature Kimberley Food and Beverage producers and manufacturers that sell fresh or value-added products direct to consumers or via a retail wholesaler.  The Guide aims to showcase what the Kimberley has to offer to consumers and prospective business networks.

Free for all businesses to participate in, the Guide will be produced in an accessible and interactive, easy to share, digital format which will ultimately link products with potential buyers.

Showcasing local food and beverage products by increasing awareness raising the profile of the regions’ finest offerings, it is a perfect opportunity for producers to connect their product range straight to the consumers and wholesalers both within and outside the region.

Development Officer, Food Industry Development at DPIRD, Nikki Poulish, looks forward to promoting Kimberley produce to new markets: “The Kimberley has a much wider range of top-quality food and drink producers then most people realise. This guide will help these producers reach new customers and help domestic and international buyers source our great local produce,’ she said.

The Kimberley Guide is the third in a series of regional food and beverage guides, with successful guides having already been developed for the Mid West and one for the Great Southern close to completion. The Mid West guide, along with other DPIRD supported workshops and funding in the region, have been a catalyst to creating the Mid West Food Industries Cluster which has brought a successful collaborative approach across the region’s food and beverage industry.

There will be more regional guides to follow with the view of creating a state-wide capture of the food and beverage producers in WA.

There is no cost to be involved and producers can be included by completing a short online form and uploading some photos and a company logo.
