Originally considered alternative food only purchased in local markets, organic food is becoming increasingly popular with consumers. This has fuelled demand for the Organic Livestock and Poultry Farming industry. The popularity of organic meat has surged over the past five years, contributing to rapid growth and expansion at the farming level. Over the five years through 2014-15, industry revenue is projected to post exceptional annualised growth of 19.1%, to reach $239.7 million. Profit margins remain strong, but have fallen slightly over the period. This is due to increased competition caused by the entry of new players, which has pushed farmgate prices down slightly.
Farms in this industry primarily produce certified organic livestock or poultry. Organic farming is free of synthetic chemicals, fertilisers or genetically modified organisms. The industry excludes farms that are not primarily engaged in organic farming.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
