Agriculture & food
Following the State Election held on 29 November 2014, there has been a change of government. This website will be updated accordingly.
Agriculture in Victoria
Victoria is Australia's largest food and fibre exporting state. Victoria's temperate climate, high quality soils and clean water support our world-class agriculture industries.
The key food and fibre industries for Victoria's exports are meat and dairy accounting for 41% of the total value of food and fibre exports.
The value of food and fibre exported from Victoria increased by 12 per cent in 2013-14 to reach a record of $11.4 billion, accounting for 29 per cent Australian exports.
We enable Victoria's agriculture and food sectors to maintain and enhance a reputation for world-class food by sustainably increasing wealth, employment and investment in regional communities.
