The aspect that is often ignored is that the food industry, which, despite the recent decline, still includes a majority of Great Britain-produced raw materials, is worth well over £100bn as of April 2003. Official figures show that New Zealand, Australia, the whole of the EU, on average, and the U.S. all recorded increases in farm incomes, albeit modest in some cases, during the decade ending in 2000. A catalogue named 'The Commercial Farmers' showed graphs indicating how the trade balance in the food and drink sector had deteriorated in the past 10 years by more than 50%.
