Premium Foods

Productive land and generally reliable growing conditions support premium food producers in the region. Wagyu beef, truffles, seafood, dairy products, organic foods, pantry products and more attract attention for their quality and provenance. 

Premium foods from the Great Southern meet local demand and also find markets outside the region and interstate. We continue to foster growth in exports of premium foods to markets in the UK, Asia and North America.

Our premium foods are showcased each year in the Taste Great Southern event. In 2022 an international trade mission bringing 17 delegates coincided with Taste Great Southern, connecting a range of international markets with Great Southern premium produce.

Taste Western Australia Premium Food and Beverage Buyers’ Mission bringing trade buyers to the Great Southern to meet producers.
