The Cereal, Pasta and Baking Mix Manufacturing industry has contracted over the past five years. While the industry has shown some positive signs over the period, volatile input prices, downstream retail pressures and changing consumer trends have posed challenges. These conditions have also contributed to falling profit margins over the past five years. Industry revenue is forecast to fall by an annualised 0.5% over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $2.4 billion. Revenue is projected to rise 5.2% in 2014-15, due to improved export earnings and increased sales of higher priced value-added products.
