Despite challenging conditions, agriculturally focused industries made their mark in the Australian market, as this year's Top 100 Food & Drink Companies report, developed in collaboration with IBISWorld reveals.

Meat processors had a strong year, benefitting from longstanding export markets that boost performance, with 17 companies in the Top 100 and two in the Top 10 – JBS Australia (#2) and Teys Australia (#6).

AACo rose 13 places to #38 and reported a 34.23 per cent increase in revenue.

Five companies recorded double digit revenue growth: AACo, Bindaree Beef Group (entered the Top 100 for the first time at #34), 31.48 per cent; Kilcoy Pastoral Company, #32, 24.65 per cent; JBS Australia, #2, 11.83 per cent; and Rivalea, #55, 10.24 per cent.

It's been a long time coming, the evolution of AUSPACK into an ell-encompassing trade show for packaging and processing, truly reflective of the industry represented by show owner the APPMA. And last night at the APPMA Gala Dinner during AUSPACK, the APPEX show was launched.

The APPMA Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner was attended by 450 packaging and processing industry professionals, who gathered for the industry's night of nights to recognise this year's winners: Foodmach, Fibre King, GS1, Packsize, Trimatt Systems and Laco Automation were victorious, with emerging leaders from HMPS and Rhima also recognised.

On the Matthews Australasia stand at AUSPACK today, CEO Mark Dingley announced the company's new strategic partnership with FreshChain Systems, enabling end-to-end fresh food traceability from farm to fork.
