Modernising Manufacturing in the Food & Beverage Industry

Australia’s food and beverage processing industries are worth approximately $26 billion to the economy and employ almost 235,000 people. It is a vital industry because it not only produces goods for the local market, it is also a net exporter of foodstuffs and beverages. When combined with the related industries of agriculture, forestry and fishing, then the figure balloons to almost $54 billion.

All food processing businesses need plant and equipment that not only does the job, but are reliable and designed to meet the environments in which they work. This has become increasingly easier and affordable, as per the Australian government’s Manufacturing Modernisation Initiative (Make it Happen). The Australian Government has made $1.3 billion available to fund technological improvements in manufacturing translation and integration. Hence providing businesses an excellent opportunity to achieve business growth and aid economic recovery post-COVID.
