The State Government has launched a webpage to provide a one-spot information service to help agribusinesses grow and expand.

Agriculture Minister Mark Furner said the website would help break down barriers preventing innovators from turning their business dreams into reality.

“If you’re looking to grow your business or expand, this site is your gateway to everything you need to make that happen,” Mr Furner said.

“It provides the latest information on government services, agribusiness support, mapping tools and funding, agricultural processing and manufacturing, and trade, investment and export.

“The One-Stop Service also links business owners and investors with experienced regionally-based industry development officers within my department.

“Our rural economic development staff are based across Queensland, and they know the agricultural supply chain in their area.”

Mr Furner said the aim of the new service was to attract agribusiness investment to Queensland, and create jobs and opportunities in regional and rural areas.

“The service is free and is open to new and existing agribusinesses looking to diversify, intensify or expand their existing holdings,” Mr Furner said.

“And it’s not limited to on-farm activities. We encourage developments across the supply chain, including processing or logistics proposal, AgTech and innovation solutions or services.”

The One-Stop Service web portal can be found on the Business Queensland website
