Food and agribusiness is a thriving industry in the Western Parkland City with significant existing export activity and opportunity for growth ensured by the opening of the new Western Sydney Airport.
Western Sydney Airport will provide unprecedented access to and from Sydney, with the potential to deliver fresh and pre-prepared food anywhere in the world within 36 hours of production. This will provide access to major international premium markets.
Western Parkland City’s availability of land, economic infrastructure and advanced manufacturing capabilities position it as a frontrunner for investors looking to set-up operations in the Asia-Pacific region, or local companies wishing to expand.
