2030 Roadmap

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has laid down a bold vision for the industry: to exceed $100 billion in farm gate output by 2030. Based on our current trajectory, we know industry is forecast to reach $84bn by 2030. This suggests that we still have significant work to do over the next 12 years if we are to achieve our vision. To help us get there, the NFF, in consultation with members, industry stakeholders and government, has developed the 2030 Roadmap. The Roadmap identifies the significant opportunities and challenges that we may face on our journey to 2030, and maps the steps required to reach our vision - website.
