Summary: Australian Pork Limited Benchmarking System The Australian Pork Limited (APL) has been supporting activities to advance the Australian pork industry for almost twenty years, with a vision to make pork Australia’s preferred choice of protein. During the last ten years, some of the big industry achievements have been: • 35% increase in domestic fresh pork consumption • $5.3 billion industry value (increased from $3 billion in 2012) • Reduced carbon footprint by 60% • Improved animal welfare Each year APL will produce an annual KPI benchmarking report for a closed group of 19 farms (including the largest commercial pig farms in Australia). Currently the KPI data is collected and aggregated by manual entry into an Excel sheet. In this project, we aim to work with APL to digitise and create value from its current KPI benchmarking report. Project Scope We see 4 phases for the digitization of the APL KPI benchmarking process. In this project we will focus on the first two phases.
