So much more than a vital pizza topping, a delicious snack, or an accompaniment to a holiday cocktail, pineapples have been a mainstay of Queensland's horticulture industry for over 100 years. For the year ending June 2021, 71,084 tonnes of pineapple was produced in Australia, at a value of $46.8 million. Of that, 34 per cent was sent to be processed, 66pc was sent to the fresh market, and almost all of it was grown here in Queensland.
