Bitter fruits: Fruit and vegetable prices are expected to decline, negatively affecting revenue

Difficult trading conditions have plagued the Specialised Grocery Retailing industry over the past five years. The overwhelming majority of industry revenue is derived from fresh meat, fish, poultry, fruit and vegetables. Consequently, fluctuations in the prices of these items contribute to revenue swings. Competition from other food retailers, such as bakeries and supermarkets, and consumption patterns for industry products have also influenced the industry's performance. The industry's revenue fluctuations are expected to have largely cancelled each other out over the past five years. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to grow at a marginal compound annual rate of 0.4% over the five years through 2017-18, to total $1.5 more.
