Accessing Premium Markets: Australian Organics
One of the key pillars to grow agriculture is accessing premium markets. We must complement
our existing trade and produce the premium agricultural products that increasingly affluent
consumers in overseas markets want. We need to target high-end food segments by producing
differentiated products built around a reputation for safety, integrity and quality.
One of the premium markets we need to look at is organics. Organic farming is a type of

integrated production system where increased biodiversity and a functioning soil ecosystem
promote plant and animal health.
