Artisanal Sector program – stage one grants are closed. Stage two to open soon!
Victoria’s artisanal sector encompasses the production of high value produce or premium food on a small scale or by specialised techniques, and with a clearly identified provenance. It creates a connection between the consumer and producer that allows customers to experience the authenticity and story of the product, in a way that provides direct value to both the producer and the consumer.

Outcomes of the regional forums
During June and July of 2018, Agriculture Victoria hosted a series of nine independently facilitated consultation sessions to help determine the best way of supporting the growth of Victoria's artisanal agriculture and premium food sector.
This report outlines the common themes that were captured from the views of the participants.
