THE Wheatbelt and Central Coast Food and Beverage Capability Guide launch was held at Nesci Estate Wine Farm last Friday.
Produced by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development in partnership with the Wheatbelt Development Commission, the Wheatbelt Business Network and the Northern Growth Alliance, which incorporates the Shires of Chittering, Dandaragan and Gingin, the online guide features food and beverage businesses from across the Wheatbelt, many of which attended the launch to sample produce from the region and mingle with other business owners and producers.
Labor MP for the Agricultural Region Darren West officially launched the proceedings.
Farm Weekly journalist BREE SWIFT attended and took these pictures.
