SCENIC RIM AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRIAL PRECINCT
Job Creation & Regional Investment.
We are committed to promoting sustainable growth in food production which will attract new skills and social diversification to the Scenic Rim.
a hub for value-added food production
Kalfresh’s proposed Scenic Rim Agricultural Industrial Precinct (SRAIP) would create a hub for value-added food production in the heart of the productive Fassifern Valley, 84km south-west of Brisbane.
The innovation precinct would offer food manufacturing businesses access to rural industrial land that’s situated where the raw ingredients are grown.
Co-location of production and processing means faster turnaround from paddock to plate, which in turn means reduced food miles, operational efficiencies, agricultural diversification and greater demand for Australian Grown produce.
The precinct will create opportunities for social and economic growth in the local area, delivering new skilled jobs and opportunities to local residents.
At the heart of this proposal is the belief that the region has the capacity, location and natural resources to take advantage of the growing demand for Australian produce.
