The Board of the Food and Beverage Development Fund SA Inc are pleased to announce the establishment of a series of support payments designed to assist and support students or intending students within the food and beverage industries.

Successful recipients receive between $1,000 and $10,000 to develop their skills and knowledge through research, education and/or training.  The support payments are intended to reward individuals that have shown exceptional commitment to vocational education and training and who are committed to furthering their skills and knowledge within their chosen industry.

We firmly believe in the importance of learning and we are committed to assisting those individuals who share this belief. 

To date we have proudly assisted 228 people, and provided approx $1,050,000 in support payments and sponsorship of industry events, numbers that we are incredibly proud of.


We are also responsible for the Cooks Trade Recognition and Bakers Trade Recognition processes for the State.  Further information regarding Trade Recognition is available from the links on this page.
