Agriculture and Food

Australia is home to an abundance of high-quality – clean, green and safe – produce. This can be seen in the quality of Australia’s beef, lamb, fruit, vegetables and dairy products produced across Australia. From 2021 to 2022, Australia’s agrifood exports to the Philippines increased in value by 63.76%. The categories with the highest increase in value were wheat, beef, barley, and cheese.  Grapes and citrus, which are one of the top agricultural exports to the Philippines, continue to do well.

In September 2023, fresh Philippine mangoes arrived in Australia, demonstrating Australia’s commitment to boost two-way trade with the Philippines. For more than a decade, the Australian Government, through the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), has been working with farmers, the mango industry, and scientists on improving mango crop management and production in the Philippines. These projects help to improve Filipino farmers’ livelihood, domestic industry profitability, and export competitiveness of Philippine mango products.

There are over 200 Australian Agrifood companies exporting to the Philippines, which are now widely available in the supermarkets and online channels such as Robinsons, Landers, S&R, the Marketplace, SM, and Lazada, among others.

As a Strategic Partners, we continue to increase our two-way trade in agriculture with the Philippines, including in agricultural technology.
