Premium Food & Wine
Premium Food and Wine Produced in our Clean Environment and Exported to the World is one of the South Australian Government’s 10 economic priorities.
South Australia’s food and wine industries are a vital part of the state’s economy and there are major opportunities for growth locally, nationally and overseas.
Our clean water, air and soil ensure our food is produced to the most premium quality.
The Premium Food and Wine economic priority aims to capitalise on opportunities and identify ways to increase our market share and profit margin by maximising the production of differentiated and processed food and wine, and realising increased value for our premium products.
In December 2014, eight objectives to support this economic priority were announced. The one-year objectives have all been achieved and significant progress has been made on the three-year objectives, to deliver this economic priority.
Since the priority's announcement all of the one-year objectives have been achieved and significant progress has been made on the three-year objectives.

The Food and Wine Scorecard is produced by Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) and measures the commercial value of each industry using value chain analyses. Go to the Food and Wine ScoreCards page.
