ACCC Inquiry into the dairy industry
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is inviting dairy farmers to participate in a series of public forums. The forums are a part of the ACCC’s Inquiry into the Australian dairy industry. The purpose of these forums is to hear directly from dairy farmers about competition and fair trading issues that affect them.
The forums will be held in each state and venues include:
Warrnambool, Victoria, on Monday 27 February 2017
Hahndorf, South Australia, on Monday 20 March 2017
The forums are an important part of the ACCC’s public consultation for the Dairy Inquiry, which is examining competition between milk processors, contracts between processors and farmers, global supply markets, and the profitability of dairy farms. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss issues directly with ACCC Commissioners.
The forums are just one option to have your say. We encourage you to call or email us if you cannot attend one but would like to contribute to the Inquiry.
