Sales are predicted to grow by up to 15 percent each year, putting this industry in the top five growth industries in Australia.
 
Farm-gate sales of organic products have risen by 34 percent since 2010. The meat sector has experienced a dramatic increase and sales of beef are up by 111 percent to 73 million, lamb is up by 64 percent to 19 million and poultry has increased by 15 percent to 18 million Australian dollars.

The report commissioned by the leading organic body Biological Farmers of Australia (www.BFA.com.au) incorporates research from Swinburne University, ABS statistics and world outlook information for the first time, as well as exclusive survey work by a specialist market research group.

The report was launched at the end of October in Brisbane on the eve of BFA’s 25-year anniversary celebrations, marking a quarter of a decade of formalised organic market industry self-regulation and advocacy. Australia has around 23 million inhabitants.
