  • FIAL Report

The Food and Agribusiness Sector Competitiveness Plan (SCP) outlines a ten-year vision and strategy for the industry.

The updated SCP report identifies some of the challenges and opportunities facing the food and agribusiness (F&A) sector, followed by a discussion on key knowledge priority areas. Finally, the SCP highlights regulatory reform areas that impede business’ ability to innovate and grow.

The SCP was developed in response to the federal government identifying the F&A sector as one of six priority areas for the economy. The Industry Growth Centres Initiative (IGCI) was the vehicle to drive the country’s productivity and competitiveness. The SCP aligns with the IGCI priorities1 , with a particular focus on advocating for innovation and value adding activities throughout the F&A value chain.

This report is reviewed and revised annually to reflect market forces shaping the sector, ensuring it remains current and relevant.
