Food and beverage manufacturing overview

Queensland's food industry is one of the largest manufacturing sectors in the state and has a reputation for producing high-quality, safe food at competitive prices. Food items manufactured include fresh produce, such as fruit and vegetables, seafood and meat, and value-added foods, such as desserts and confectionery, dairy foods and ready-made meals.

The beverage manufacturing industry includes soft drinks, fruit juices, bottled water and flavoured dairy drinks, as well as sports drinks, energy drinks, ready-to-drink teas and other 'functional' beverages. Recently, the ready-to-drink tea and sports drinks have experienced considerable growth.
