IN HER OWN WORDS
The City of Wanneroo agricultural industry contributes approximately $120 million to the state and the supply of strawberries from Wanneroo is more than 50 per cent.
More than 1000 people are employed in the Carabooda, Nowergup and Neerabup growing districts in that sector.
The City will work with industry representative bodies through the Vegetable WA network and others to listen to and work with local growers to support their productive endeavours.
State MPs are also urging West Australians to keep eating our locally grown strawberries and to cut them up before consuming. The City will advocate for local producers during this harvesting period to encourage continued purchase of local supply.
