The organic industry is rapidly becoming a significant player in the global agricultural production scene. With estimated annual growth of up to 20% per year, the industry is fast moving away from its “niche” industry status and into the mainstream agriculture. NSW DPI supports the industry in its growth and development, through providing expert advice and support.
NSW has an organic industry that consists of over 1000 accredited producers, with a farm gate value of over $108 million. The key organic products are fruit, vegetables, dairy, wheat and other cereals, soybeans, rice, wool, sheep meat, beef, wine and herbs.
