Savour Western Australian flavours with Plating Up WA
- Plating Up WA attracts a growing number of venues featuring Western Australian ingredients during the month of June
- An initiative of the State Government's Buy West Eat Best program
Western Australian 'hero dishes' will feature on the menus of more than 60 venues throughout the State and in Singapore this winter as part of the annual Plating Up WA campaign.
Plating Up WA is an initiative of the State Government's Buy West Eat Best program and runs during June, showcasing dishes that feature WA's best winter ingredients paired with local craft beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverages.
Across WA, more than 40 restaurants, cafes and bars are taking part, with ingredients ranging from local potatoes and winter vegetables to Wagyu beef, organic beef shin tomahawk, lamb, seasonal seafood, truffles and hemp hearts.
Each participating WA venue receives an ingredient register of Buy West Eat Best members helping to connect local producers with venues and suppliers and bring attention to new ingredients and artisan producers.
For the second year, the campaign has been extended internationally with Plating Up WA: Singapore Edition, supported by the Invest and Trade Western Australia Singapore office. More than 20 venues will plate up WA's finest ingredients for patrons in Singapore from 23 June to 23 July.

"Plating Up WA has celebrated the best of our State's fresh, seasonal and diverse ingredients and beverages since 2018.
"Our local food, beverage and hospitality industries have faced significant challenges over the past few years, but continue to demonstrate fantastic resilience and innovation in finding new solutions.
"The Plating Up WA campaign is an opportunity to really get behind our local producers, cafes, restaurants and hospitality venues and enjoy some of the delicious local produce they have on offer."

"Last year, the campaign expanded into Singapore for the first time, providing a great opportunity for Western Australian producers to explore new market opportunities beyond their regions.
