Fresh produce on the menu in Carnarvon

Gascoyne fresh produce could soon be celebrated on menus around the world, with Western Australian beef, seafood, fruit and vegetables showcased to international buyers at the Gascoyne Food Festival.

WA Agriculture and Food Minister Alannah MacTiernan met with supply chain representatives from Japan, Hong Kong and Thailand in Carnarvon to discuss export opportunities for Western Australian produce.

The buyers are in Carnarvon as part of the four-day Gascoyne Food Festival, which features culinary tourism events in Carnarvon, Exmouth and on Dirk Hartog Island, as well as networking opportunities for local growers.

The festival is supported by the WA Government through the Gascoyne Development Commission’s Community Chest Fund and Tourism WA’s Regional Events Scheme.
