This report is the fourth in a series of five roadmaps, each aligned to the Federal Government's Industry Growth Centres. Over the next 20 years, Australia’s F&A sector has the potential to strengthen its position as a small but significant exporter of sustainable, authentic, healthy, high quality and consistent products. Enhancing the proportion of on-shore value-adding will be key, whether it be through the creation of unique products for niche markets or through developing varieties of commoditised goods with unmatched quality attributes and competitive production costs.
The Plan focuses on all innovation and value adding activities along the food and agribusiness value chain that meets the needs of consumers and/or customers, and results in the increased benefit and sustainable competitiveness of the industry. Where products are produced as commodities, they are excluded.
