Report reveals Asian opportunities for food processors

Monday, 07 July, 2014


The Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) has released a series of reports that aim to improve the Australian food industry’s understanding of the opportunities available in the Asian market.

Published in partnership with Austrade, the series of reports examine opportunities for specific manufactured food products - snacks, beverages, baked goods and condiments - in Malaysia, Thailand and China.

“Australian and international research has focused on export opportunities for products such as dairy, meat and wine across Asian markets but there has been little focus on the opportunities for manufactured food products such as snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and confectionery,” said AFGC CEO Gary Dawson.

“AFGC Market Insights focus on three key markets: Thailand and Malaysia because of improved access under the respective trade agreements, and China due to the long-term food consumption forecasts.

“Exporting to Asia is challenging for many Australian food and grocery manufacturers, particularly SMEs with limited resources.

“It’s critical for government agencies and industry to work together to facilitate trade and innovation.”
