The Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) supports primary industries by:
- shaping and driving involvement in State and Federal Government priorities that affect them
- engaging them and other stakeholders in the development of policies, plans and programs that affect or interest them
- providing South Australia's contribution to intergovernmental policy that affects primary industries and regions
- measuring the commercial value of each industry using value chain analyses and producing the annual Food and Wine ScoreCard.
