U.S. Agriculture and Farming Industry: Top Growth Market and Supply Chain Opportunities

U.S. Food Supply Chain: Market Overview

The United States Agriculture, food, and related industries is a $1.053 trillion market, with the farming industry contributing $132.8 billion to this total. The delivery of farm products through the U.S. food supply chain involves interactions between many buyers and suppliers. The farm production sector includes farmers, fishers, and ranchers that produce raw agricultural commodities (crops and livestock) used as inputs to the food supply chain. Land, water, labor resources combined with capital and machinery are needed to deliver agricultural commodities.

Other industry sectors produce most food products before being consumed. First-line handlers provide initial processing of food commodities to prepare for processing and manufacturing.

The food processing and manufacturing sector includes meat packers, bakeries, and consumer product goods companies that produce packaged and processed food products.

The wholesale food industry includes companies that store food products in warehouse facilities before retail distribution, which requires an extensive transportation infrastructure — distribution of food products to retailers and foodservice companies for final preparation and consumption. Retailers include grocery stores and other distribution outlets. Food services include restaurants, fast-food, eating, and drinking establishments.
