Over the coming generation, the world’s focus will shift even more intensely toward food production for its rapidly multiplying population.

The world’s population is expected to grow to almost 10 billion by 2050, boosting agricultural demand – in a scenario of modest economic growth – by some 50 percent compared to 2013*. Packhorse is well positioned to be a significant voice in the Australian conversation. We invest at a large scale in the agribusiness sector and the regeneration of rural Australian environments.

Regeneration and the future

Land suitable for food production, to feed the people of the world, is fast becoming scarce as regeneration practices have in many areas been poor historically. Sadly, the amount of suitable land on earth has reduced by 50% in the past 60 years

“The packhorse bears its valuable load quietly and without seeking recognition. This strong, hardworking horse is always sure footed, good-natured and never shies away from challenges and surprises.”

With net population growth on the planet of some 222,000* people per day, the population of the world is now 7.8 Billion and this is expected to reach 10 Billion* by 2057.
