Sector Insights - Berries


The Australian berry sector is experiencing strong sector growth and has good future value potential on the back of recent genetic advancement in new varieties and research which has placed berries in the “superfood” category.

Highlights:

  • The value of Australian berry production grew at a compound annual growth rate of 10% p.a. between 2013 and 2020;
  • Australian consumption per capita has risen by almost 7% over the past five years; and
  • While growth through the berry category has been predominately domestic to date, international demand is intensifying.
