Victorians are being encouraged to Click for Vic by visiting a range of websites, such as Victoria Country Market, Providoor and Co-Lab Pantry, or by making an online order direct from Victorian businesses.
The campaign is being rolled out across television, print, radio, digital and social media channels.
How to get involved
Help for farmers and producers
Minister for Agriculture Jaclyn Symes yesterday announced a $1.5 million E-Commerce and New Marketplace Transition Package, part of the Agriculture Workforce Plan which is helping the agriculture sector through the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.
Online farmers markets or marketplaces primarily selling Victorian agricultural produce will be able to apply for grants to help new and existing producers with the cost of onboarding, online marketing and registration fees.
Marketplaces can also apply for funding to help cover the costs of freight and logistics, reducing delivery fees for consumers buying Victorian fresh food and goods online.
A training program will also be provided to help farmers and producers with their e-commerce skills, supporting them to implement an effective e-commerce strategy as part of their ongoing operations.
Businesses can find out more about the funding and other support available through the Agriculture Workforce Plan on the Agriculture Victoria website.
