Australian Fodder Industry Association
The Australian Fodder Industry Association (AFIA) is the peak body for the Australian fodder industry connecting all sectors of the supply chain from seed to feed.
Since AFIA was established in 1996 our network has worked to help the fodder industry grow through sharing information, assisting trade, and promoting research and development. We also work closely with government regulators to ensure our members have a favourable environment to do business in.
In 2007 the fodder industry had an estimated value of $1.5 billion, a figure that continues to grow assisted by AFIA’s work. Over the past 15 years the export industry alone has grown from 100,000mt to 600,000mt of fodder products exported.
The fodder industry is one of the most important industries in Australian agriculture, underpinning production in dairy, livestock, horticulture and other intensive industries.
