Custom Analysis

Organic opportunities

We assessed the global market for organic ingredients, mapping and analysis of competitive regions and their ability to supply growing demand. We leveraged our global network of industry players and consultants to gain insights that helped our client understand the challenges and opportunities of entering the market. While trade in organic ingredients is not well documented, our deep understanding of the conventional marketplace, the likely key suppliers of organic product allowed us to paint a comprehensive picture for our client that supported a detailed business case.

Facilitating investment

A number of clients have appointed us to assess the investment needs of major Australian agrifood sectors in Australia. We have profiled each sector; including the major players and key future drivers. We researched and developed detailed SWOT analyses as well as pinpointing potential investment hotspots along major agrifood supply chains – based on current gaps and future opportunities. The detailed outputs have been used to brief and inform management and staff, therefore facilitating more informed and targeted investment activity.

Food pricing

We completed a major study for Australian Government into the factors determining the pricing of food through Australian agrifood supply chains in meat proteins, dairy, horticulture, grains and oilseeds, and processed foods.

The work has assessed the impact of trade, consumer preferences, retailer strategies, cost structures and supply chain dynamics to assess the relationships between retail and farmgate prices. Specific categories and products have been analysed. The work was completed in mid-2015.

The RIRDC food pricing paper was published in March 2016.

 

The report is available for download from the RIRDC site.

Explaining realities

We prepared an analysis – explaining realities – for a client of the factors affecting the local and imported supply and the influences on consumer demand for processed tomatoes and stone fruit within the Australian retail market. Summary of the processed food analysis

We develop and regularly monitor a simulation of the returns available from commodity dairy markets and the impact of key variables in product prices, market mix, profit retention, processing costs and relative currency values on available farmgate milk prices.

We researched and delivered a major conference paper to the Australian Dairy Conference event in 2012 that outlined the critical issues in the dairy value chain affecting the scope for producers to influence returnsGet the ADC paper.

We developed a comprehensive annual analysis of the outlook for the supply and demand for milk in the northern dairy industry and the variables affecting that region into the future.

Food affordability

We created a process and reporting package for a major client to track the affordability of food to Australian households over time and to illustrate significant trends in household food spending and shopper preferences.
