What is Put Victoria On Your Table?
It's time to get involved and Put Victoria on Your Table
Did you know Victoria’s dairy industry accounts for more than 65% (5.8 billion litres!) of annual national milk production*? Or that Victoria is currently Australia’s largest lamb producing state?

Everything you need to create an incredible meal can be found right here in Victoria, with a bountiful supply of delicious fresh produce and exceptional wines grown, harvested or made within a few hours of wherever you are in Victoria.
Put Victoria on Your Table (PVOYT) is a call to action for consumers and industry alike to connect with local makers, growers, manufacturers and producers and to contribute to the ongoing growth of Victoria’s food and wine industry.
PVOYT holds two themed seasonal campaigns each year – The Roast Collection in June and The Spring Graze in September – with the 'Put Victoria on Your Table' message also heavily celebrated and profiled throughout the Festival in March. Participation is subject to Melbourne Food and Wine approval.
