We’re from here

Australia’s food and grocery manufacturing sector is a vital contributor to the health and wealth of our nation.

It is Australia’s largest manufacturing sector, made up of over 36,000 businesses that typically take produce from the farm and transform it into food and the consumer goods that every Australian needs every day – the essentials of life.

While this industry has built a strong reputation for quality, safety and environmentally responsible production, its importance is strengthened when you examine the contribution it makes to the communities in which the industry operates.

From quality jam makers located outside Adelaide, to nappy manufacturers in Western Sydney, to salad suppliers in Brisbane, and chocolate makers in Tasmania, we’re here to champion our producers and manufacturers.

We promote sound public policies and initiatives that support the industry’s sustainable growth and the industry’s contribution to the economy, the health and lifestyle of communities and care for the environment.
