The real value of world agrifood demand is projected to increase by 77 per cent between 2007 and 2050, with most of this increase occurring in Asia. Beef is one commodity where there could be a significant increase in demand, with rising incomes in Asia leading to an increase in demand for higher protein foods, including meat and dairy products.
This study describes Australia’s beef supply chains, Central Queenslands reliance on economic infrastructure, and how this infrastructure influences the competitiveness of the Australian beef industry.
