Peel Food Zone

The Peel region is strategically positioned to contribute to the food and nutrition security of the Perth Metropolitan area, and greater Western Australia. The region also has capacity to capture high-value export opportunities to capitalise on global demand for food.

Traditional food industries based in the Perth Metropolitan area are transitioning to the peri-urban Peel Food Zone, which will provide a secure long term location with modern infrastructure, transport and supply chain logistics to support efficient agrifood value chains.

Agriculture and Food, WA, is leading the planning of the Peel Food Zone to foster investment in intensive food production in the Peel region.  The Peel Food Zone will incorporate innovative food technology solutions while protecting the productive capacity of our soil and water resources, and maintaining WA’s world-class biosecurity system to deliver clean, safe and premium products.

The WA agrifood sector is vital to growing our economy, jobs and regions. Agriculture and Food, WA, is partnering with industry and agribusiness to drive profitability and productivity in the WA agrifood sector, so it can double in value by 2025.

The Peel Food Zone Program is managed by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
