Bringing Australia’s unique food offering to the UK

Anastasia Nishnianidze, Trade and Investment Commissioner to the UK & Ireland at Austrade discusses her country’s unique food offerings and initiatives.

The Australia-UK Free Trade Agreement will soon enter into force. This means that the UK’s hospitality sector, retail, and consumers will get better access to some of Australia’s premium, unique delicacies and flavours. These include our Patagonian Toothfish, Western Rock Lobster, our range of spirits infused with native Australian botanicals and our famous macadamia nuts. At Austrade, we are excited to see some of these products already start to enter the UK market.


Patagonian Toothfish is a world renowned species of fish found in the Southern Ocean

Sustainability drives Australia’s food innovation

Australia’s climate change legislation includes the national targets of cutting emissions by at least 43 percent by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2050. The innovation we see coming out of Australia’s agtech industry directly supports Australia’s drive to net zero. Across our agrifood industry, we see Australian companies leading the way when it comes to reducing their carbon footprint.
