Dealing with Australian Grass Fed Beef Industry Issues

Australian Beef

SITUATION ANALYSIS     All data sourced from ABARES


Average retail beef prices in Australia increased $4/kg or 30% in the years from 2001 to 2009, and declined about $0.50/kg in recent years.

Retail beef prices have broadly increased in line with inflation

In 2013 Australian consumers spent about $2.5 billion more on beef than they did in 2001.

So retailers and processors have increased the markup on the same 220kg beast by a conservative $500 over the past decade, while the producer is still receiving the same price for his beast now as he was in 2001.
