Australia is among the world’s lowest-cost producers and largest exporters of agricultural commodities.
Key characteristics of our agriculture industry include:
Australian agriculture offers patient, long term investors excellent economies of scale by acquiring existing businesses and/or building a portfolio over time through acquisition and consolidation.
Australia has an excellent history of safe and healthy food production. As an island nation, we are well isolated from many diseases prevalent elsewhere.
We are a major global exporter of high quality agricultural commodities. With a small domestic economy and a large excess of production, Australian commodities have supplied global markets for many years and will continue to do so.
Australia is well positioned geographically to high growth Asian and Middle East markets. As their population and GDP/capita grows, so does the demand for high quality & safe food.
Our nation has a stable regulatory environment compared with many other countries.
Agricultural land in Australia on a value/hectare basis is undervalued relative to other developed countries. As a result, with the right strategy and a long term approach, investors can capture value from investing in land and productivity.
Australia’s agricultural industry is hungry for international investment. It is widely accepted that the development and growth of our agribusiness sector is contingent on new, external capital.
Non-residents can own the land.
We are a well-developed market developed by highly-competitive producers.
