Did you know?

Over 3 billion people now rely on food grown somewhere else and transported to cities, a number likely to grow to an astonishing 7 billion by 2050!

Trials of genetically modified crops.

In the next 50 years we will need to produce as much food as has been consumed over our entire human history just to feed the world's population.

Australia feeds not only its own population but another 60 million people in other countries. The average Australian eats about 33kg of beef per year. Most Australian families eat two meals of beef each week.

We are one of the most efficient producers of cattle and the second largest exporter of beef in the world. We supply about 4% of the world's beef. These exports are worth over 2.5 billion dollars to our economy.
