Mandurah Culinary Science School a step closer with Labor's $5 million investment pledge

Labor's Canning candidate Mellisa Teede and senator for West Australia Louise Pratt have pledged $5 million to support Mandurah's hospitality industry through backing the proposed Culinary Science School. 

The future culinary hub was the brainchild of Peel Development Commission and warmly welcomed by Murdoch University. The City of Mandurah commissioned strategic consultants Brighthouse to undertake a feasibility study for the proposed Culinary Science School. The Brighthouse report was presented to the February 2019 meeting of the Council’s Strategic Committee and included innovative concept designs for the facility. The result was a unanimous resolution to pursue a $5million Federal Government pre-election funding commitment for the development of a Culinary Science School in Mandurah.

The school was devised to help increase the culinary expertise of the local and state hospitality and food production sector. Local food entrepreneurs would be able to use the school’s cutting edge program to learn how to make the most of the region’s local produce, adding value to their food for both domestic and overseas markets.

“The school would showcase the best the region has to offer, including our fantastic primary produce and booming cafes and restaurant scene,’’ Mrs Teede said.

Mrs Teede said the project had in principal support from Murdoch University which is also involved in the Commonwealth Research Centre for Future Food Systems and leads the Australian National Phenome Centre, both of which are of strategic importance to food and agriculture industries in the Peel region.
