Overview

This stream provides funding for new investment or the bringing forward of planned investment projects in existing businesses that involve value adding post harvest or production. This includes activities that transform WA primary production from its original or raw form (i.e. commodities) into a state which is perceived as more valuable to the end consumer.

Funded activities can include investments:

  • in new manufacturing capability or processing facilities, new technology or plant modernisation which reduces WA's reliance on imported products
  • that improve sustainability and reduce the environmental impact of the manufacturing or processing activities
  • that enable expansion or diversification of business operations in relation to value adding.

Funding is also available to businesses looking to relocate operations to, or expand existing operations in WA.
