Exploring the growth potential of Australia's food manufacturing sector
AIFST were commissioned by the Page Research Centre (PRC) to deliver a paper discussing the potential to grow Australia’s food manufacturing sector and proposing focus areas to support this growth.
AIFST worked with RDS Partners to deliver this report which was developed using a synthesis of current key reports related to the future of Australia’s agricultural and food production system obtained through a literature review and through a series of conversations with 26 industry leaders, scientists, and stakeholders deeply embedded in the sector.
This paper gives a brief overview of the key themes identified from the literature review and the interviews providing a new narrative for Australia’s agricultural and food production system - the key opportunities available to Australia’s food manufacturing sector. Rather than prescribe solutions, it is intended to catalyse further engaged conversation, guide policy development and inform targeted and effective action.
We are proud to share this work with our food system community – let’s start the conversation.
