This is a very broad indicator. I’m minful that it uses the data available, yet other componets such as profit rather than revenue may be better. ??
there are other elements we could use to compare and assess what gives value. Such as what kind of products are being producted by eahc companiy. Are they food and drink that give nutrition or discease. Of course it’s a mixed bag (eg. CCamatil produce ccoca cola, an exteremely high sugar content drink, contributing to dibeties and obseity, and at the same time produce goulbun vally fruit, whicnh ios somewhat more conrtuctive in ‘feeding the nation’).
