Australia’s food and grocery sector is under intense pressure from a range of forces including the competitive nature of the supermarket retail sector; subdued confidence in the broader economic environment; Australian currency fluctuations; and a comparatively higher cost of doing business in Australia than other countries.

The AFGC aims to understand and communicate the drivers behind the FMCG industry’s financial challenges, trends and business issues in an ever-changing economic landscape. Through partnerships with AFGC Associate Members and other key stakeholders, the AFGC will produce research and provide expertise aimed support members in their efforts to ensure continued fiscal success.
