Agribusiness Grants & Funding
The sheer breadth of industries that constitute the Agribusiness sector is mind-boggling: from farming and management, to production and marketing, the complete Agribusiness input and output chains provide employment for more than 1.6 million Australians. Agribusiness also provides 93 percent of our domestic food supply, and export revenues exceeding $41 billion per annum.
Ongoing Federal and State Government Agribusiness funding has played an important role in supporting the Agribusiness sector and keeping it competitive in the globalisation era. An emergence of nimble smaller operators feeding a burgeoning boutique retail demand is also bringing a renewed sense of optimism to this once embattled sector.
If you're an Agribusiness operator seeking incentives or agriculture funding, Incentive Advisory can help. Our experts can guide you through the myriad of opportunities and more than 800 government grants and incentive programs made available to businesses each year to identify the one that meets your needs. Then we work with you to maximise your funding potential and secure the funds you need to grow.
What opportunities exist in the Agribusiness sector?
Recognising the important role that the Agribusiness sector plays in the next wave of growth for Australia, State and Federal Governments have introduced both broad-based and targeted incentives and grant opportunities.
Whether it is to assist with developing new and improved processes across farming, irrigation, crop management, meat and livestock, aquaculture, viticulture and wine making, for example, the options for government assistance are numerous.
Specific programs are targeted at job creation in regional areas, developing export markets for home-grown products as well as offering assistance for capital expansion.
