Murray Future Food Facility - Expression of Interest

Published on Wednesday, 15 November 2023 at 12:00:00 AM

The Shire of Murray owns the Food Innovation Precinct WA (FIPWA), located in the first stage of the Peel Business Park Industrial Estate. The Precinct supports industry innovation, product development and food and beverage manufacturing industries in WA.

The Shire of Murray is calling for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from parties interested in activating 6,000 sqm (or part thereof) of undeveloped land at the FIPWA. The EOI process is an opportunity for an industry proponent to partner with the Shire to develop a commercial-scale food or beverage processing operation within the FIPWA ecosystem.

The successful respondent(s) will have the opportunity to work with the Shire to collectively develop a viable and informed development plan and business plan for the site over the next 6 to 18 months. The vision for the site is to complement the operations delivered by our existing partners in the Research and Development, Production and Innovation Centre facilities at FIPWA.

This EOI process will identify suitable proponents and development concepts aligned with the overall mission of the FIPWA. This will enable the Shire to negotiate and plan its options with suitable industry partners to shape and implement a development opportunity within the FIPWA’s ecosystem of innovation within the Peel Business Park.

Responses will be required to articulate the intended delivery model for the proposed activation, including the roles and responsibilities of the proponent, the Shire of Murray or any third parties. A full list of information required in submissions is included within the EOI document.

All enquiries regarding the Expression of Interest should be directed to:

General Manager of FIPWA

Submissions must be made electronically by emailing

Submissions close 3:00pm (AWST), Friday 2 February 2024.

Canvassing of Councillors will automatically disqualify respondents from the EOI process.

The Shire will not be submitting an in-house expression of interest.

Chief Executive Officer
