About us

vegetablesWA has been the peak industry body representing vegetable growers in Western Australia for over 60 years. Our purpose is to assist growers, industry and government to maintain a profitable and sustainable vegetable industry.

As we are all aware our industry is changing rapidly with the issues being wide and complex. To assist you we have a team of skilled people to address the key areas in which an industry association can assist your business. These include advocacy & representation, development extension, value chain & export development, marketing & business services.

vegetablesWA looks after 1,000+ WA vegetable growers who pay a fee for service on the sale of their product. This fee for service is then spent on projects through the applications submitted to the Agriculture Produce Commission (APC), Vegetable Producers Committee (VPC).
