By Tim Evans”Perth’s natural product revival will be one of the biggest stories in the next five years.”
With more than half of the world’s population relying on the supply chain for their natural health products, there is growing demand for the products Australians love.
“The city-state has become synonymous with the “Perth Effect”, the phenomenon whereby the city’s natural resources are being used to help the world transition away from a fossil fuel-based economy.
The state is also leading the way for Australia’s natural products boom, with more than 20% of Australia’s exports to other countries coming from natural products, such as fruits and vegetables.
The next natural products craze will be in Perth, according to the report.”
Perry is poised to overtake Melbourne in terms of the number of Australian companies using natural products in their supply chain,” the report says.”
The state has the highest concentration of Australian natural products (54 per cent) in the world, with Melbourne on 48 per cent.
“The state’s natural goods sector is worth $US1.8 billion ($2.7 billion) and the state’s $2.5 billion (NZ$2.6 billion) natural products industry has doubled in size in the past year, according a new report by the Natural Products Industry Association.”
Our research shows the number one way for a company to become a natural products company in Australia is to be in the natural products supply chain, as they need to be the supplier of the best natural products,” the NPAA chief executive, Tim Ellis, said.”
If you’re a company in Perth that’s looking to build a natural product business, there are many great opportunities out there.
“He said Perth had one of Australias best and most productive natural products sectors, with its local and national industries producing over 80 per cent of the country’s natural food products.”
We are in the midst of a renaissance, with Perth producing more natural foods than any other city in Australia,” Mr Ellis said.’
I feel like I’ve been living in a dream’It’s hard to imagine a more perfect time for a Perth natural products business.
The boom has been so fast that some of the city-states biggest names, such the state of Victoria and the New South Wales government, have been struggling to keep up.”
In the past two years, the Victorian government has lost $US400 million, with the New England government losing $US900 million,” Mr Thomas said.
He said the city had a “superfood” reputation, with a number of food brands coming into the region and the CBD was the best place to shop for natural food.””
There’s so much that’s happening that I feel like, over the next 5-10 years, Perth will become the most natural products city in the country,” he said.
He said the city had a “superfood” reputation, with a number of food brands coming into the region and the CBD was the best place to shop for natural food.
“There are a lot of places that are more natural, more organic, that you can go and explore and try some of these foods,” he added.
“It’s a real buzz right now.”
The “herbals” movement started in Perth and has grown rapidly, attracting a large number of locals to the CBD to experience the natural food movement and the natural ingredients that they use.
“When people come to the city and they see how it’s grown, they’re hooked,” Mr James said.
