Smart food & beverage manufacturing is so much more than packaging

Australia is famous for its food. Our exports and manufacturing continues to grow – and in fact, food & beverage manufacturing is now the single largest manufacturing sector in Australia.

Now, with the Modern Manufacturing Initiative’s Food & Beverage Roadmap steering investment into automation and digitisation, things like smart waste management (costing Australia $20b a year) and digital provenance (to prevent issues like counterfeit wine) will make Australia leaders in this emerging field.

In our latest podcast, Tony Pititto, National Head of Agribusiness, Food & Beverage at Grant Thornton and Madina Aziz, Audit Partner discuss the opportunities for the sector through the Modern Manufacturing Initiative and what we need next from Government to help Australia target non-traditional export markets. This is much broader than simply processed food – we’re talking better quality products, reducing waste, and innovative ways of bringing products to new markets and customers.
