New data released by Hort Innovation shows the production value of Australia’s horticulture industry has grown by $6.15B since 2012/13. Horticulture production volume has also grown across the period, with an additional 850,000T (tonnes) produced in 2021/22.

The new data is unveiled in the latest edition of the Australian Horticulture Statistics Handbook, developed by Freshlogic on behalf of Hort Innovation. The handbook includes information on 75 different horticulture categories for the year ending June 2022.

Produced annually and now in its 8th edition, the guide includes figures on retail and food service use, exports, and imports, share of production by State and Territory, wholesale value, and volume. It captures the previous financial year’s data, drawn from supply chain sources including international trade statistics and industry peak bodies. The information contained varies depending on the product and sourcing of relevant data.

Olives Overview

Included in the Fruit section is the Olives Overview, providing a snapshot of the Australian olive industry for the 2021/22 year. Key statistics include production volume and value, and olive oil international trade.
