Not quite ripe: Produce prices continue to fluctuate, constraining industry revenue growth

Difficult trading conditions have affected the Specialised Grocery Retailing industry over the past five years. The overwhelming majority of industry revenue derives from the sale of fresh meat, fish, poultry, fruit and vegetables. Consequently, fluctuations in the prices of these items contribute to revenue volatility. Competition from other food retailers, such as bakeries and supermarkets, and consumption patterns for industry products have also influenced the industry's performance over the period. Overall, the industry's revenue fluctuations have largely cancelled each other out over the past five years. As a result, industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 1.0% over the five years through 2018-19, to $1.6 more.
