The Australian Native Food Industry is maturing away from wild harvest and R&D is playing an increasingly important role in developing viable cultivation and post-harvest management systems. Particularly pleasing is the increasing interest shown by mainstream food manufacturers and retailers in Australian native foods.
The Australian native food industry offers farm income diversification opportunities and scope for Indigenous people to generate additional income streams on Aboriginal owned land.
The purpose of this stocktake was to provide a first ever situation assessment  for the Australian native foods industry; to analyse stocktake findings and determine implications for R&D and strategy; to deliver a survey questionnaire that could be used in the future to update the stocktake; and to develop a simple industry database of willing and publically available contacts.
