  • Premium Gascoyne produce on show at the Yagan Square event today
  • Buy West Eat Best campaign promotes local produce to support Western Australia growers and businesses

Diverse range of premium quality produce from the Gascoyne will be on show today at the latest Taste of Western Australia event in Yagan Square in the heart of Perth.

Perth foodies can sample produce from the region, including goat ragu; Sweeter Banana bread, asparagus, capsicum, zucchini, green chilli and tomato frittatas; and pumpkin and turmeric soup.

“Gascoyne is well known as one of the fruit bowls of Western Australia, renowned for its bananas but also producing an increasingly diverse palate of fresh produce.” Minister for Agriculture and Food Alannah MacTiernan said.

“Perth foodies today have the chance to try out that produce for themselves as part of the McGowan Government’s efforts to boost consumer awareness about the food that comes from our regions and to support our local growers.”

It is the second of several Taste of Western Australia events celebrating the State’s diverse regions through food conversations with local chefs, producers and food businesses as part of the State Government’s Buy West Eat Best program.

Gascoyne supplies about 47,000 tonnes of fruit and vegetables per year, worth about $100 Million, including a diverse range of tropical produce such as bananas, pawpaw, mangoes, grapes, tomatoes, avocados and beans.

Promotion builds on the success of the Buy West Eat Best Good Choice campaign, which has helped to raise awareness about the benefits and importance of buying local.
