Australia's top ten trade commodities – Almonds

Australian almond exports

The Australian almond industry is expanding rapidly with the total area of almond plantations having increased from 3,555 hectares in 2000 to 58,046 in 2020. Australian almonds are grown in four regions of Australia: Sunraysia (VIC) which produced 56 per cent of production, Riverina (NSW) which produces 24 per cent of production, Riverland (SA) with 19 per cent of production and Swan (WA) which accounts for 1 per cent of production.  

There is strong demand for almonds globally with consumption growth worldwide to continue due to the increased awareness of the positive health attributes, the use of almonds in new food products, and rapidly growing demand from developing markets.

For the Australian almond industry, sustainability is about creating a thriving industry that has a positive impact on the environment, local communities and economy. By striving toward continuous improvement, the aim is to grow an industry that’s better for the planet, the economy, local communities and growers. There is also commitment from industry to create a safe, ethical and fair workforce.
