Agriculture Victoria supports a productive, globally competitive and sustainable Victorian economy for our innovative and resilient agriculture, food and fibre sector.

We do this by working with the community and industry to enhance productivity; connect the sector with international markets, create jobs, support growth, and maintain effective biosecurity.

The agriculture sector is vitally important to the Victorian economy and to regional Victoria. It produced more than $14 billion worth of food and fibre exports over the past 12 months.

We have an ambitious target to increase food and fibre exports to $20 billion by 2030. To reach this, we are investing $15 million in Taste Victoria, which brings together the export and market access projects and investments we make across the sector under one framework.
