  PROJECT 1: DIAGNOSING THE TRADE DEFICIT

Performance of processed food: a deteriorating trade balance

Taken separately (and note the different scale), this view of the secondary processing trade deficit (HS IV only) reveals the substantive shift that has taken place since 2004. Since 2011, the deficit rose from $6.3 billion to $6.46 billion in 2012. The data include "food products" and "beverages, spirits and vinegar" (shortened to "beverages" for use in this analysis), and exclude "tobacco."

Individual HS data by chapter (MS Excel)

 

Our work is about understanding what is happening across this sector. This requires examining the trade data for each food type – or some 140 specific products that make up the total trade situation.

The analysis begins by looking at the two main categories at a two-digit level of HS code for food products and beverages.
