The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says its dairy industry inquiry will examine competition between milk processors, contracts between processors and farmers, global supply markets, and the profitability of dairy farms.

In its Dairy Inquiry Issues Paper published today, the ACCC has laid out the key issues it will look at as part of its 12-month inquiry which it has been directed to carry out by the Australian Government.

“The ACCC is seeking feedback from interested parties on issues across all product and geographical markets in the Australian dairy industry. This inquiry will closely examine the key competition and fair trading issues affecting the dairy industry,” ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said.

“As a formal inquiry, the ACCC will also have the ability to compel information from parties including processors and retailers. Our aim is to present a really clear picture of the issues facing the market today, and make any recommendations to ensure it remains fair and competitive.”
