In reply to the Hon. J.S. LEE (Deputy Leader of the Opposition) ().3 May 2023).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Trade and Investment has advised:

The Department for Trade and Investment (DTI) provided $12,500 to support this program.

DTI's role included assistance with recruiting suitable South Australian food and beverage companies to attend the event, curating a program designed to deliver maximum value to the South Australian businesses attending.

The program constructed in partnership with Export Connect, Food South Australia and Austrade sought to include market insight presentations along with business matching, and coordination of the venue for the event.

Through this collaboration 26 suitable South Australian food and beverage companies attended the event.

DTI is coordinating follow-up discussions between these South Australian companies and the visiting buyers with the aim of increasing South Australian exports through the buyers.
