The Victorian Vegetable Industry

Victoria has one of the world’s best recipes for natural foods: a temperate climate, a variety of soil types, a clean supply of water, extensive low input farming systems and skilled, efficient farmers who are environmentally responsible.

With a worldwide demand for clean, safe and fresh food, Victoria is in a strong position to market its superior food and agricultural products to the global community.

Victorian vegetables are produced in a clean environment and are renowned for their high quality and extensive variety.

However, over the last 2-3 years drier than usual conditions and reduced water allocations has resulted in a reduction in the quantity of vegetable production.

This factsheet provides a brief introduction to the significant role the Vegetable industry plays in the continued prosperity of all Victorians.
