Food & Drink Business, in collaboration with IBISWorld, presents this year’s Top 100 companies, a ranking by revenue of Australia’s largest players in the food and beverage sector.

This year’s Top 100 reflects financial reporting from calendar year 2021 and financial year 21/22, with Covid, ongoing supply chain disruption, geo-political tensions and war, and extreme climate events all protagonists on companies’ balance sheets.

It is worth noting that the list is only inclusive of manufacturers and looks at total revenue of the highest reporting ANZ entity of the company.
