Agrifood exporters now have access to a 24/7 online portal designed to make accessing grants, marketing information and financial assistance easier.

The Agrifood and Fisheries Export Services Portal was launched by the Department of Primary Industry and Regional Development last month in an effort to centralise export-related services.

More than 100 State and national services have been highlighted through the online portal, which WA Agriculture Minister Alannah MacTiernan said would make it easier for exporters to “know where to look”. “While there are scores of support services available to WA businesses looking to grow their exports, they are spread across different tiers of government and industry,” she said. “It’s hard to know where to look.

“This highly-accessible, online portal will help agrifood companies to access the services that best match their needs, driving the best possible outcomes for WA industry.”

Users can choose from a service category, delivery category or service provider to produce a bespoke list of export-related services.
