The Murraylands Food Alliance (MFA) is a cooperative venture among major food producers, processors, and manufacturers in the Murraylands region, contributing over $1.1 billion annually, equivalent to more than 48% of the local gross regional product. Established in 2014, the MFA, facilitated by Regional Development Australia Murraylands and Riverland (RDAMR), focuses on boosting the productivity and competitiveness of the regional food industry through strategic initiatives.

The Alliance prioritises four key areas for future work: People, Place, Innovation, and Growth. Emphasis is placed on strengthening relationships among business partners and addressing workforce development to overcome growth barriers and retain skilled employees in the region.

Aspiring to be recognised as a premium food-producing region, the Murraylands actively seeks ways to enhance pride in the local food industry and contribute positively to the community through proactive planning policies, including infrastructure access and cost reduction.

MFA members are dedicated to improving the competitiveness of the regional food industry by sharing knowledge, identifying common areas for improvement, and exploring innovative concepts. They lead in supply chain innovation and invest in research and development in packaging, consumer research, energy alternatives, genetics, and processing technology.

Expressing positive expansion plans, members emphasise environmental and ethical responsibility to meet export and consumer demands. Collaboration within the Alliance aims to create a unified vision, advocating for infrastructure and utility provisions supporting future industry growth. The MFA seeks to be a robust regional voice, fostering community pride and influencing decisions by businesses and government to ensure necessary support for industry expansion.
