Significance

The importance of the agribusiness sector can be perceived from the fact that the United Nations, Food and Agriculture Organization operates a division dedicated to agribusiness development entirely. When considering Australia, there are over 161,000 companies operating within in the agribusiness sector with over 560,000 employees covering primary production, processing, wholesaling, marketing, logistics, economics and manufacturing.*

Growth and volatility

The Australian agribusiness sector is forecast to grow over the next decade to reach over $250 billion. The sector stands at the mercy of the elements, the weather, the global commodity markets and the demand patterns of customers and consumers. This shows the volatility of the whole agribusiness sector. The agribusiness sector is front and centre as a growth driver for our national economy going forward.
