The Australian consumer foodservice industry is valued at A$54 (US$41) billion. Australia’s commercial foodservice sector is a competitive market and with an ageing population, the institutional foodservice sector (aged care, hospitals, etc.) continues to grow.

COVID-19 related government restrictions had a large impact on the HRI sector over the last two years. Information on the effects of these restrictions is included throughout the report.
