Abstract: The number of certified organic operations in Australia grew by 5% between 2015 and 2016. There were an estimated 2,075 certified organic producers, 1,163 certified processors and 513 certified handlers in Australia in 2016. Exports increased to all continents in 2016, and new markets opened up in Central Asia and South America. About a third of exports by tonnes were destined for the East Asian market, and another third to North America. The top five export destinations for exports in 2016 were the USA, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, and Singapore, which account for about two-thirds of total tonnage exported. Hong Kong showed the biggest increase in exports between 2015 and 2016. Beef was the top export by tonnage, at close to 20% of all exports in 2016. Horticultural produce, dairy products and wine were other important exports in terms of total tonnage.
