Every year, in collaboration with market research firm IBISWorld, PKN stablemate publication Food & Drink Business gathers all of the latest company data to reveal a ranking by revenue of Australia's heaviest hitters in food and beverage to create Australia's Top 100 Food & Drink Companies report.
This report, sponsored by Foodmach, lists companies according to their most recently reported revenues in an easy-to-read format, and in this special edition, we'll also reveal the shuffling of the ranks of Australia's top ten companies, the best performing industry sectors, and the companies that rocketed up the list on rising revenues.
Australia’s food and beverage manufacturing sector is the largest in the country. It accounts for more than a quarter of all manufacturing and has been the leading sector since 2012. But it is a volatile space as some on this list can attest.
According to IBISWorld, the top 100 food and beverage companies in Australia collectively generate in excess of $108 billion in revenue (up from $104 billion in 2017-2018) and employ more than 130,000 Australians.
